    I downloaded his latest, "Parting Shot" and it is providing the soundtrack to
    my TGP session this morning.
    What a great sounding project! Lots of Latinesque arrangements with some badass percussion underneath Steve's masterful playing.
    I mean...Anthony Jackson, Dennis Chambers, Manolo Badrena, Marc Quinones, Bobby Allende. How could you lose? :eek: :bow
    I've always loved his Strat tones and his riffing is part of where I'd like to
    end up some day.

    Check it out, guys...

    Now here's one (of many things) we agree upon ..
    Steve is one my all times favorites and Major influences ever ...

    We have corresponded from time to time and Steve's kindly sent me some really great recordings ...
    It started by him complimenting me upon my version of "little Sunflower" on a youtube ...
    saying that's how he should have performed it ...
    Ya just can't get a better compliment then that ...

    Also don't forget Steve uses 9 on all his guitars ... even his semi-hollows..
    Parting Shots is great ... he's none a bunch of CD's with these same players... such great composing & playing ...

    Remember when he used to play on the Letterman show too?

    Never understood why Khan isn't bigger in the jazz buying consciousess - he's a great great player that seem very under the radar.

    I don't remember when he played on Letterman.
    But to be complimented by a giant like SK is high praise indeed, Joseph!

    :cool:

    What a sweetheart guy to to anyone that takes an interest in his playing. At least that has been my experience. There's just something very deep and real about the guy.

    I also like his books Pentatonic Khancepts and his chord books. Great methodology without being derivative. He adds to the conversation of guitar exploration with his own voice.

    I love Steve Khan, just a great great player. His "Suitcase" release is awesome, and so is, "Green Field", and Let's Call This". I am sure all of his releases are great, but I have only heard the three I mentioned. I own the later two, and "Suitcase" is a high priority in my Amazon cart to get.
