Hey John, I had wondered where you were these days after UT, and finally did a Google search for you. Love your music! i ordered a CD. Jazz is one of my favorite types of music. I'm in KingsportTN now and don't hear much of it live, but I lived in LA for 6 years where I enjoyed quite a few concerts and jazz on the radio. I don't keep with many of the CAmpus Crusade folks much except for Chip Bachelder, and I know he sees Tony & Laura when he's around. Maybe I can catch a concert of yours if my famiiy & I get to N. Florida one of these days. Take care, Bret Beach
my wife and I will be dog / house sitting in St augustine Florida from may 9 to 18, Do you have any public gigs during this time period ? can you suggest any clubs or musicians to check out ? Mostly interested in Jazz.
Good Morning John,
Angela Atkins said she had spoken with you regarding your jazz trio performing at an upcoming event on Wednesday, April 17th at the downtown Jacksonville Bank Building (9th Floor). The event will begin at 4:45 p.m.- approximately 7 p.m.
I will be handling logistics for the event, please confirm your availability, price and any special requirements you and your band may need.
I look forward to hearing back from you.

it's been awhile but thought it would be great to bring you back to Jazz in the Park on St Simons Island if you are still in the area and interested. Send me an email either way.
Thank you so much,

I kee seeing you post on Facebook, but never see where you are going to be?
Please inform me of anything entertaining this weekend!!
I couldn't find an email address. This is the only way I knew how to contact you. I wanted to know if you are still teaching private lessons. Please contact me at the following email address. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
Hey, im a senior at Douglas Anderson and i was hoping to set uo an audition for JU school of music. How could i go about doing that >
Enjoyed your music and your website. I was searching the web to find someoone who teaches jazz and saxophone in Jacksonville. I see that you teach at the college level.. Any chance that you also do private lessons? I'm looking for a teacher for my daughter, a musician attending LaVilla School of the Arts. She is a new member of the jazz band and will be playing Alto Sax (her primary instruments are flute and piano). I realize you might be a level higher than she is now, but thought it was worth a try! And, hope to see you play in town sometime soon!
I can't tell you how nice it was to see you a couple weeks ago. Like I told you my wife and I are working towards being able to move over to Jax. Your wife and Nolita are beautiful. I really glad to see your doin well bro. Take care papo
Send me your contact info man!
My name is Sam Rule and I am a student enrolled at the University of Tennessee. I am currently working on a historical research paper regarding jazz music in Knoxville. I am looking for the history of jazz music here at the University of Tennessee and the contributions it has made. I read that you studied under Jerry Coker and was wondering if you have any information or know any contacts that could help provide some information, I would greatly appreciate the help.
I saw you in a trio that performed a great set at the Jazz Festival this past spring. We are looking for music for the background to dinner then following, more upbeat, for Saturday evening Oct. 8.
This is part of a fundraising event for the White Oak Conservation Center which is being hosted here by our good friend Mikhail Baryshnikov.
Scott Giddons has been here a few times and of course if he is not already booked I would love to have him with you.
Inany case, If you are available, let's talk. I realize this is last minute, but c'est la vie - it was just handed off to me...
Hello John - just bought and downloaded the track Mode Time from cdbaby. Sounds great! Wondering if you'd be interested in letting us play the track on our November edition of the Palm Coast Jazz podcast? It would be the leadoff track, we announce title, artist, musicians, website and where it can be purchased, as well as on the playlist at Podomatic. Our 1st edition peaked at #14 ranking in jazz category, and had downloads from all over the world - especially Hungary, Italy and of course here in the US. Just let me know at this email address - and if so, would you be willing to send a wav file - which will sound so much superior to the mp3. You can do that at our dropbox here: http://soundcloud.com/sevenoctaves . Thanks John. All the best - Kenny
We are a group of hair stylists who are looking for just the type of music you play! We'd love to come see you guys play to help up unwind. Could you please add us to your email list so we can come see you when you play! Thanks so much.
You don't know me -- my name is Glenn Morrissette and I'm a tenor player (quasi-based in Los Angeles, but mostly on the road these days). Anyway, I'm going to be in St. Augustine for the next few weeks helping my mom recover from a health setback, and I'm hoping there's some sort of scene in the Jacksonville area that I can check out while here. I did a bit of Googling, came across your web site, and figured I'd say hi and see if you might be able to point me towards any jam sessions happening in the area, or anything else that's worth checking out. I've been down here over a week now, and am seriously itching to play, so would really appreciate any help you might be able to offer this total (albeit completely harmless) stranger!!
Do you do lessons outside of your JU duties. I am an old guy that used to play alto years ago, lost my job 3 years ago and picked up the horn after forever. Bought a tenor ,recently sold my alto and bought a soprano. I have been taking some lessons w/ someone here and thought a little time spent with a tenor plaer wouldn't hurt.I have some mouthpiece and emboucher questions but mostly I just want to learn and get better. thanks jim rubin
John, I would like to see your upcoming local schedule if possible. If on your site I cannot find, only see past shows. I am a friend of your father-in-law, and you have actually been to my house a while back. I caught about an hour of your show on Saturday at the JazzFest and enjoyed it. Would like to see more if possible. If you can add to mailing list of local shows that would be grat also.
Thanks, Todd Mason
I hope you're doing well. I'm sorry to pass along bad news via email, but Bill Scarlett's health is declining fairly rapidly. He was taken off chemotherapy treatments for lung cancer a few weeks ago and put on home hospice care. He's not in pain, but probably doesn't have much time left. If you'd like to get in touch with him or Becky, you can try calling 865-522-8256. Their address is 509 18th St., Knoxville, Tn.
Hi, Mr. Ricci. A while ago, I played with Scott Giddens in a gig that my teacher, Vann Thornton arranged and Scott reccommended that I try to go the University of Jacksonville and spoke quite highly of you. As a junior, I was wondering if you had any tips on preparing for an audition or being a lead alto player (I am lead in my school and we are going to Savannah for the Swing Central Jazz Competition in late March and don't want to disappoint. Thanks in advance!
you sound great!
iwas talking to will boyd who told me you frequently play the charleston/savannah area...i have relatives in charleston and as i am playing out more, i would dearly love an opportunity to hit with you in that area sometime...the money is not important, its the quality of life...
anyhow, great to hear you...
Please let us know when you are playing again!
Connie and I really enjoyed your trio at The Grape last weekend (and we enjoyed talking with you at the break, as well)! Please let me know where you will be playing in the future.
Found your website by searching for musicians connected to Ernie Ealum. i could use a four piece band of musicians to back my performance of classic R&B and Motown tunes on Hilton Head Island... Please call (843) 342-5228
For how long will you be teaching at UNF? I ask because I'm considering the school to finish my undergrad. I moved to Miami and studied with Ed Calle, Gary Keller, and Gary Campbell at F.I.U. but have been working for Celebrity Cruises for 2 years. What do you think of the program there? Thanks, Javier Ramirez
