For one of the most amazing performances I've ever seen.
I was at the Late Night Session at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola Saturday night and you reminded me how music changes lives.
The talent present that night was amazing and it was the first time I had seen you perform. I was impressed beyond my wildest expectations.
Thanks for making the evening special.

well I recived a e mail from you I like you music we wold like to know your fees and dates you will be abole to perform for LA CUCINA GRAZIE ANNA
Very professional BB3. With the ability to locate your gigs now, I can actually attend one. Good luck this summer with your plethora of gigs-jw
It was my honor to finally get to meet you and hear you play some. I wish I had taken the opprtunity to play soemthing with you - this is my loss. Next time I will sure to take the opprtunity. I felt I had my time as co-leader and it was a jamm session. I wanted to compliment you on many things but most importantly those outside of jazz trumpeting. I found you to be refreshing - personable, respectful, easy going yet passionate, and the consumate professional. These traits I didn't find in many others but you excelled in these. With your playing abilities you have but a great future ahead. Iam honored to call you a new friend. - David

Hello Benny -- years ago, in the mid 1940's , I played sanare drum in the University of Pittsburgh Marching Band. That's when your Grandfather was a very big part of the VMB [ Varsity Marching Band ]. I can remember Benny and his clowning to this day -- and all his hard work with the arrangements. I can remember one night at band camp when he played Hail To Pitt in waltz tempo. At the time, I was a bit mad at him, but, today I remember it as Benny being Benny !! A great guy !
I have some pictures of your GrandPa from that time period. If you would be interested in copies of them, I would be glad to send them to you.
Been wanting to get in touch ... We're doing a concert next month @ August Wilson Center ...
We should talk ..... Hope all is well and you're having
a good holiday break....

hey benny congrats on your music and web. looks great. i wanted to hear some of your jazz but i can't get it to play. perhaps because i am at my work computer. i have an i-phone. anyway of getting any of your jazz on it? take care and keep it going.
We've spoken once or twice over email, but I have to say thank you for the practicing tips and artists to listen to! I put your tips to work and I think that they had to do a lot with me getting the guitar chair in the Colorado All State Jazz Band after two years of being first alternate. Hope everything is going well with you!
My mother talked to you a few weeks ago about playing at a party at the Perkiomen School in PA on Feb. 11. I didn't realize that she didn't formally book you. Can we do that as soon as possible. I am so excited that you will be coming!!
Congrats on the things your doing. Keep it going.
I just wanted to let you know that Mr E. and I got the gym
back. We can't wait till you get back in town. No ziggy on nothing. We hope you still got a little game left.
COLONY will be available on cdbaby.com??
Thank you so much!

I need some harmonica lessons. Do you give college kids a discount?
Yes, please add me to your list!
This is directed more towards practicing. I was just wondering what practice methods you used/use to develop your jazz chops. Was the majority just transcribing?
