I enjoyed your playing yesterday, as always. You're one of the few who manage both sides of the line between trad swing and the boppish music some call progressive jazz. You're like a chef who knows and uses the most appropriate from an arsenal of wonderful seasonings, always choosing the perfect one for the moment and situation.

It really blew me away - how good you were in supporting me as a singer at the FIRS dinner. Your own solos were wonderful and you gave an all around great performance for the large audience that included the Senior Pastor of the church and his wife, and also the legendary - fellow musician - Johnny Nelson. Believe me, if any singer is ever needing a guitarist who known how to make them sound their best - I can quickly say, "Call Jimmy Spero. He's your man!"

Jimmy, each time I have the privilege of performing with you, I am inspired and thrilled. You are sensitive, musical, humorous and amazingly talented. I look forward to all of our future performances!

I enjoyed talking to you over at the Alhambra Club the other day. Your music is wonderful. I like hearing your interpretation of the old classics. I like Kenny Rankin. Do you know his interpretations of the old ones?

I can only say that I trust what you play, and for me, trust is everything. Not only do you have a great feel (hard to come by for guitarists), but you've made the very best musical decisions under the circumstances you had on our gigs. You Get an A+ from me! Love the way you play.
