Hello!!! I was looking at the pictures from my Grand Opening at Laissez Faire (Marietta) where you played for my party and wondered if you were still playing in the area.

Bill and I will have to come out to Cafe 290 to hear you play on a Sunday soon....

All the best!

I am interested in knowing how much you charge to perform. I am looking at having a holiday jazz event next year and am getting a head start. I live in Delaware,. Looking forward to hearing from you. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Hi Gary, I met you last Sunday evening while sitting at the bar. I'm the guy that was visiting from California...I purchased your CD and I must say that I'm extremely impressed. Keep up the great work and I will certianly put you on my priority list when I return. If you are on Itunes or other douwnload sites, I will tell my friends. Keep up the great work.


My name is George Alford and I'm an upcoming playwright and screenwriter. I was referred to you by Nichele Bean, a poet. I am trying to make and produce a independent film. I am looking for a musician that can act and play the saxophone for my movie. It is a non-paid project, so I am looking for someone (Afro-American male, 25-35) trying to get their feet wet. If you know of anyone, can you please hit me up or have them hit me up at 770-639-5620, georgec151@aol.com or I'm on facebook: George Alford. Not sure if you can help me, but I thank you for reading my comment anyway. Be blessed.

Hi Gary,

You know me as TFH2228 on Twitter. I had to deactivate my account there today because I was a little tired of the stuff going on there daily but I would still like to keep following you on your site. You can reach me via the email given or follow on my blogpage at www.therrsplace.blogspot.com Hey thanks for your funny daily comments and your descriptions of life for the working musician. Thanks again,

Tom Herrera

Just stopping by to show all the love and support. I really had fun at the late night jam session for the jazz festival as well as at the Library. Singing with you was great. I look forward to more from you soon.


Hi Mr. Harris. I was inquiring about the All Star Jazz Session at Cafe 290. I know of an awesome drummer by the name of Brien Andrews who would be a tremendous asset to your ensemble. Would you please be so kind as to giving me some information, so that I may relay it back to him? Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

looking forward to gigging with you all that jazz!

Hola Senor Harris! I had the pleasure of catching your band at Library Coffee Co. last night (I was on the couch with my date...not the old folks that were all up on each other] and I thought you guys were kickin'! I can't wait to see y'all again.

Hey Gary!!
Hope you are doing well! Great here. I'm producing a CD right now that I'd like to get some sax trax on. Would you be into playing? I think 2 songs - maybe 3. I'm pretty efficient in my studio so we'd be looking at around 1/2 hr to an hour per song and I can get you a ruff MP3 before hand if you' like. I like the fresh & unrehearsed vibe alot too tho, so I'm game for winging it. I get some of my best takes from players that way. Not the biggest budget - I know we can do $50 per song and get both/all songs done in a single session.

Schedule is flexible and we can do it when you can. Literally anytime from 10am to 2am, I'm in the studio and any day of the week. So you name the time and I'll make it work.

Give me a call if you'd rather. I called your number and got the fax machine so let me know if you have a new #.

Look forward to hearing from you and seeing you again!!!

Please excuse this form letter. I have been writing about jazz for 30 years, having reviewed thousands of recordings and contributed to all of the main jazz magazines including Jazz Times, Jazziz and Downbeat. I have also written ten books on jazz, most recently The Jazz Singers.

I thought I’d drop you a line to tell you that I am expanding my writing beyond reviews, articles and historical essays. I am also writing liner notes (over 550 thus far), press biographies, press releases and website content (including an in-depth interview of you for your website). If you would like any writing done in the future, please consider me. For more information about me, please visit my website: www.scottyanow.com.

All artists want more visibility which can lead to more CD sales, gigs and concerts. Every artist needs a great bio and an informative website. Every CD needs well-written liner notes. There is no point in putting out exciting recordings that few get to hear.

I am regularly asked by artists who are releasing their self-produced CDs and do not have a hard-working publicist, “Who should I send copies of my recordings to?" I have the answer. Recently I compiled two lists of names and mailing addresses of important writers who regularly review jazz CDs. My journalist lists, available individually for a fee, include one that has 35 writers and an expanded list containing 75 jazz journalists.

In addition, I have an extensive Jazz Radio Station List that includes information on 115 stations that play jazz at least part of the time and, for songwriters, a list of 65 jazz singers who have expressed a strong interest in trying out and performing new material. Please contact me for further details as far as the costs and the contents of these lists.

Recently I compiled an extensive Jazz Club List that has information on approximately 400 clubs from all 50 of the United States including mailing addresses, websites, phone numbers and usually the E-mails and contacts.

If you have a recent CD out that you'd like me to consider reviewing for one of the publications I write for, please feel free to send it along.

Thanks for your consideration.

Hi Gary,

Thx so much for letting sit in last night. It's been years and years since I did that. I used to come and sing late night here in town when you were in grade school. So it was such a pleasure for me. I did mean it when I said you are all very gifted and it was such a joy just to be there and be within the music. I did listen to your disc and it's very nice. I like cut 5 best on first listen. A william Green. I knew him when he was just a kid. LOL Any way thx again, hope to see you soon.
