It`s Marina, Jazz piano player,originally from Russia. We have met at Puppets, while the club was still open.
I have ask you about Recommended Letter to support my Artist Visa - and you kindly agreed to sign the letter. Thank you so much, Benito, I got this visa ! I'm playing in the city-it's great!
Now I have a chance to apply for a green card, because the case on the green card is almost the same. My lawyer ask me to renew the date of the recommended letters.
Is it OK if I type your previous letter and come to to sign it?
I would be very grateful to you! Let me know where is the right place to meet you- for example I can come to your place in Brooklyn (I also live here) or on concert to 55 Bar on Tuesday.
Are you playing with Kenny Garrett at the Java Jazz Festival, Jakarta this Friday?
So glad to have found your site. My daughter is learning how to play the violin and I wanted to introduce her the piano also. It is also awesome that you have the same name as my father, grandfather and brother lol. Pa'lante :)
Hey Benito - I'm not familiar with your stuff but I saw you on a Youtube video with Eric Wyatt. Unfortunately the piano was a little far back in the mix (plus a loud drummer!), but you were really digging in and found your playing really enjoyable, so I just wanted to send you a quick message. I'll try to keep you on my musical radar - I hope you make it up to Boston soon!
hey bro! hope you're having a great hoilday. are you avail to play with me at club A on Jan 4?

Congratulations on a great album with Kenny Garrett! I can't get enough of "Wiggins." You blew the roof off on that one.
You may not remember my name, but I am a drum student from Hartt and I am close friends with Nat. We met awhile ago and I saw you at Sculler's a while back.
Anyway, hope to see you soon.
Feliz dia de los Padres.
See you sometime this year, i hope, perhaps at Small's where I've seen you before. You seem a good guy. Que lo pases bien, joven.
I would like to know your availability for a performance at the University of Mary Washington Jazz Festival on April 15, 2012. Please give me an idea of the cost for a one set performance (1 hour)and an additional 1 hour clinic for music students.

Are you performing in Mannhaten on February 4th? not clear from your Gigs.
I think some dates must be wrong-- HR57 site says Antonio Parker CD release on Jan. 20 and 21. Caton Castle shows are always on Saturdays; Jan. 22nd is a Sunday. The Caton Castle website doesn't show anything for Jan. 21 at this time.
Why don't you set up a mailing list that will automatically send out advance notice of your shows? I'm going to try for one of the shows coming up in January in DC area.

We saw you with Papo Vazquez at FB Lounge a few months ago and really liked your playing. Bought your CD (Azar Lawrence) from you that night and I've been enjoying it quite a bit.
Are you playing in NYC again soon? I just found your site, and it looks like we just missed you with Azar at Jazz Standard.
Have a great Christmas! Hope to hear from you.
Mark and Sandra Garvin
You're an amazing player. I loved your playing with Stan Killian at the 55 Bar last night. Great technique and feel. The best.
For me you were the \'star\' at last night\'s gig in Mallorca. Have a great future. Ivan
Hi Mr. Gonzalez,
It was great meeting you at Little Bar the other week! My name is Jacob Kelberman, and I'm a guitar player at Temple University. My friend James Collins and I talked about scheduling a lesson with you sometime during the remainder of the summer. I was wondering if you still had any availability in August?
Heard you play with Paul and Tunde Sunday night--WOW!! I work with Paul in Gettysburg. The concert was reallyl SUPERB, and I just LOVED hearing you play!! Congrats! & best wishes!
Hey B What a great night of music at the Jazz Standard the other night! Everybody was killin', especially you and Billy.What a surprise to hear A love Supreme as well. Thanks for adding me to your guest list when you saw me. I appreciate it and look forward to the next time. Take care...James

Benito. How are you? I'm not sure if you remember me, but I was the owner of the restaurant, FoodBar DC, where you performed on several occasions for our Sunday Brunch and on some Tuesday evening, a couple of years ago. I saw you last at Twins Jazz, with Andrea Wood. I'm not sure if you remember, but I was the vocalist with the Airmen of Note Jazz Band. I'm looking to do a performance at Twins Jazz in the very near future. Also performing with me will be Tracey Wright, who was also the vocalist with the Airmen of Note. She is an amazing vocalist and performer and you'd enjoy her stylings. I'm looking for a trio or quartet for the performance. I'm also going to have Saul Miller, Lead Saxaphonist with the Airmen of Note, perform. It will be an amazing performance and I can't think of any other pianist that I would love to feature other than you. There are about 4 selections that I would accompany myself on, but for the evening, you would accompany Tracey and myself. I'll be having another conversation with Twins Jazz, but I wanted to see if you'd be interested in the performance. Please let me know as soon as you can. I see you're quite busy. Congratulations on all of your success.
Hi Benito--Jon Heagle, guitar player, here. Wanted to remind you--the jam session is on at the Royale Bar in Park Slppe tonight. It's on 5th Avenue between 12th and 13th St.--1 block from Puppet's, on the other side of the street from Puppet's. They're starting around 10 or 10:30. There's a Wurlitzer electric piano there. Hope you can make it, if not this week then pretty soon. They play every Tuesday. Hope you're well, man...cheers, Jon
I am friend of Azar Lawence . DJ for WCLK 91.9 FM IN Atlanta Georgia. Your music is very free and melodic sets the tone for a true listening experience. If possible would like to interview you. My number is 770-4631868. Keep the music real it sets the world on fire.
I like your new site! Nice pictures. I especially like the "air piano" shot with the red wall in the background. ;) Hope all is well with you...
p.s. Are you on facebook? I was looking and couldn't find you
Benito I need a scan of your passport as soon as possible for ticketing on the Al Foster tour. Can you email it to me? Glad to have you on board!
