Subject: Review of Mimi Fox She's The Woman

Date: March 23, 2004

John, that is a very well-written review!

Probably your best yet, and there have already been some good ones.

You made a lot of good points (and recognized the Pat Martino influence -Mimi's been puzzled that other reviewers have not heard that or written about it). Also the point about being gender-blind. Plus all those other observations that only someone with big ears and a lot of jazz knowledge would write!!

Best, MB

Subject: Review of G.F. Mlely Re-Entry

Date: March 23, 2004

John, I don't think I've thanked you for the wonderful review you gave for Re-Entry. It's a wow!

Not just because of its praise, but for the details you took into consideration -a musician's ear.

It's juicy fodder for our prs, which I've been putting out.

Thank you.

Subject: Kurt Elling Interview Don't Measure the Limbs

Date: October 8, 2003

Hi RJ,

That's the best and most complete interview with Kurt I've seen in the nine years I've been representing him. I'm going to link to it on our website.

Congratulations to you and to us because of what you did.

Best... Bill

Subject: Review of Jennifer Stanley Christmas

Date: June 16, 2003

Greetings from a name from the past!

I wanted to again thank you for promptly reviewing Jennifer's Christmas CD. Jennifer had a nice run in the Christmas season (we sold enough to break even, she performed with a symphony orchestra in support of it, etc.), plus she found many new fans that will follow her music ministry. In fact, she has a new project coming out in Christian music in September. It's being produced by Margaret Becker (9 Dove awards, etc.).

I was just looking back on some emails and wanted to again let you know how much we appreciate your response!
