Thanks for the great workshop at Pasic. You did mention something about digital recorders for recording lessons etc. Could you recommend one that is user friendly and not too expensive? Thanks

Mr. Riley, I am amazed at what you have been able to do on the set. You are by far the best straight ahead drummer that I have heard and your playing in the Vangaurd and Mintzer bands has been outstanding. I only have one thing to ask of you. Why can't you or the vanguard ever come to Seattle?

Gday John. We met in Amsterdam 2003 at a workshop you gave at the Con. I will be in NY 28th Oct to 7th Nov and then onto Pasic in Austin. Would it be possible to meet up for a lesson? Are you doing any gigs during this period. - I remember you mentioned the Vanguard big band on a Monday night. Looking forward to meeting you.
