Dear Mr. Houston:

Thank you so much for sending me the $48.71 refund check for the duplicate subscription. You had a wonderful attitude regarding the situation. Your gift of two CDs was completely unexpected, but very much appreciated. Very, very few people would have responded in such a thoughful, giving way. Again, thank you.

Editor:Thank you for the kind words, Mr. Van Essen. It is never our intention to take more than we deserve.




Dear Mr. Armstrong,

I want to thank you for the review you recently did for my recording, Peaced Heart and Often Grin. It was so refreshing to read a review from one who clearly had taken the time to really listen to the music with an objective ear. So often individuals get stuck in just drawing comparisons between artists, thus missing the individuality that some of them represent.

I also appreciated the obvious knowledge of music that you brought to the review. Not many would even know what "reharmonization" is, much less recognize when and how it is used.

So, again, thank you for your favorable review. I am presently working on a very interesting CD that I think you might really enjoy. I will send a copy to Jazz Now when it is completed.

My best wishes to you and yours.
