Please re-release your CDs on MP3. Easier access on smart phones and notebook pads. I'm sure they'll sell.

Hey John. I'm working out of your post bop book, reading and listening to your playing. The more I hear your main ride cymbal on the speed bumps cut, the more it gets under my skin. I suspect it is a vintage Z with rivets, but I'd like to know a little more about it. Is it vintage or a recent issue? What's the age, model, diameter and weight? Anything else? Thanks Fred

Hello John, I've been watching you play drums for years and I got to say that you have very good hands, I mean your left hand seems to be very strong for a right handed drummer. I was wondering if you're a left handed person playing on right handed drums set? Thanks, Martin
