Just bought the next to last used copy of "Peter Nero at The Piano". This book should be re- issued, I'm just going nuts over Peter's arrangement of "Night and Day" The "Piano Forte" album along with the "On Tour" should also be re- issured on CD!

Hi I was lucky to find a brand new copy of ''Peter Nero play song's you won't forget'' on eBay but really, this album deserves the big treatment: remastering and burning to CD. They did it for Ramsey Lewis The Movie Album so why not? Don't tell me the master tapes are no more? I hope they are still around in a vault along with all your recordings. Thank you for this classic album,your ''Hello Dolly'' is unbeatable.The best. So any chance of that happening one day? Thank you. Simon

When in heaven's name is RCA/DGG/whomever going to release Blue Fantasy on CD?!?! It is a travesty that the finest American music since Rhapsody in Blue is not available in the current catalog. Shame!

My wife ( Mary Lou) and I saw you in person years ago at Chastain Park in Atlanta...and a few years after that saw you with ( I believe) Mel Torme, again at Chastain. I have most, if not all of your albums ( 33s)...some I found at flea markets. Are you familiar with the Gospel Mass?> I've been listening to it and immediately thought of you when hearing the piano accompaniment.Hope to have the opportunity to see/hear you again in person.

I have been listening and enjoying your recorded piano performances for 50 years and am a union member. I hope you are victorious in the infernal struggle between professional union musicians and the uninitiated people who only understand money and not the real value of you and our other unique artists on this planet! If there is anything others of us in the union can do to assist you in this struggle, please have your people contact any of the other unions! Your musical and artistic contributions to our lives are incredibly enriching. Thank you, Michael Mathew

I am enjoying the postings of your performances on You Tube and have missed your sojourns to South Alabama. I still groove with my CDs of your jazz and 20th century romanticism. Keep it up for all of us that have enjoyed you for so long.

Happy Birthday!!! Hope you have a wonderful day. I would like to know if you played in New Orleans at a club in the early 1950's. I have several of your CD's and saw a picture of you when you were a young man who looks very much like the piano player that I enjoyed so much at that club. Sorry I can't remember the name of the player or the club. Love your music. Have a wonderful birthday and hope you enjoy many more. Thanks, Shirley Nungesser

Dear Peter --- My wishes to you for a very happy Birthday! And I was shocked recently to learn you wished to retire ... but you inspired me so much in thos early days, I am now successfully entertaining others because of all I learned from you in those early days ... and so additionally, I say, thanks for the inspiration! (I hope you will change your mind about retirement!) Best wishes always, "Nan Cherie" One of your most ardent fans since the '60s!

Dear Mr. Nero, I have been looking through the online info and cannot find when you will be appearing this summer. However, I thought of a great theme for one of your Peter Nero and the Philly Pop Shows - The Greatest Hits of Peter Nero. There are so many that you can include beginning with your early recordings - Bluesette, Its All right with Me, I Got Plenty of Nothing, West Side Story Medley (which I know you have done with the Pops), through the Summer of 42 to Sunday in New York, then into the Gershwin, Cole Porter,Johnny Mercer, and perhaps your favorites. It would be fabulous. You have never done that but always seem to insert something that you love. How about an entire show?! Looking forward to the next season, but would also like to know of a show that we may attend this summer. Thank you! Barb Kunkel

Dear Peter, I have had season tickets for the past 7 years or so, and I am interested in where you are appearing with your jazz combo or as a guest conductor this summer. Attended your Villain Performance today and thought it was terrific but I must admit that I was disappointed that you didn;t have anything from Dr. Jekyll Mr Hyde - there was a great song for the two female singer and Dr. Jekyll - with the beautiful voices, it would have been fabulous. In any event, would like to attend a summer event. Thank you very much! Barb Kunkel

Hi Peter, Recently I found an LP, of you that I hadn't listened to for years, it's Peter Nero plays Born Free. I've been playing it quite a lot lately and both my two children 17yrs and 13yrs really like it. Then I got thinking about you and wondered where all these missed years that I'd lost contact with your music had taken you. I was really happy to find you looking incredible youthful, happy and still playing beautiful music. May God give you lots more years to continue on your lifes journey. God Bless. (I'm now off to catch up on all my missed music years of you).

Dear Peter, Just love "Sunday in New York". It's the Coolest! It's got such a New York sound. Can't find piano sheet music for it. Is it available to buy? I'm a singer & would love to sing that song someday. Do you ever perform in New York? Would be a Blast to hear you play "Sunday in New York" at a place like The Carlyle, Birdland, or Jazz Standard. I'm drawing the cartoons & writing music for my animated jazz short, "The Jazz Mouse" It's 10 minutes long & takes place in South Chicago in the 1930's with Black American characters. Do you know any good jazz pianists in NYC who could help me arrange my music? I compose by ear but need someone who can score correctly & who gets the raw improv jazz from early 1930's Hope to see you perform in New York on Sunday! All the Best, Mimi Brennan

Maestro, Peter, my wife and I have had a wonderful afternoon playing your music...CD's; Tapes; and Vinyl Records. Before writing in your Guestbook, we were able to hear your performance of the title song to the movie "Sunday in New York" on your website it is better than my vinyl record. We have enjoyed your music since 1961.I used to buy two each of your vinyl records--one to listen to and the other for a reserve as the vinyl would wear away. What a pleasure to have you on CD with both new recordings and re-releases of your earlier work. Peter, thank you seems inadequate in expressing appreciation for your talent...sometimes the simplicity of 'thank you' is the best way to express gratitude. Tim Hauter, Dallas

My wife had liked your music before we were married, and we were stunned to find out you were playing at the Beverly Hill Country Club when we were married there on November 29th, 1974. We always claimed you were playing for us. Good to see you are still around.

I have been playing the piano since I was about seven years old with a diet of classical music. However, in about 1962 my father brought home a transcriptions of recorded hits "Peter Nero at The Piano" for me. I immediately became fascinated with Scratchin' My Bach due to my classical background and have played the piece since I was twelve. To this day it is one of my favorite pieces. And whenever someone ask me to play the piano, this selection is ALWAYS the first I play in my repertoire. Thanks.

The summer I was 47, I got a passport and used a Eurailpass to see all of Europe, sleeping on trains and in hostels. A tape of "Summer of '42" on my Walkman got me through a lot of nights with crying babies and carousing teenagers. Night after night the surrounding noises would fade as the sound came in through one ear, then the other, and then swelled to the whole orchestra right above my head. I'm 72 now, and your arrangements continue to make me happy. I've owed you this thank you note for a long time.

Hey Peter. That's pretty impressive that my note to you in 2006 is still at the top of the list below. I haven't changed my mind. You are the greatest piano genius in my lifetime. But s..t. You won't be around Az for awhile. I talked to you for a bit after your concert here in Flagstaff at the reception we had for you in a restaurant. Also went back stage in Prescott to see you. And was the only one to go backstage at the PAC in Orange Co, Ca. I'm the guy that was a busboy at the Tropicana in May, 1957, when it first opened and you were playing in the lounge, alternating with Red Norvo and some others. You were just out of Julliard and had a trio. You would brag that your combined ages was 62. One of the guys was going into the army. I would talk to you in the hallway behind the stage when you took a break. I didn't know employees were not suppose to hang out in the bar area off duty. Ha. I still go to the Tropicana almost every spring. Anyway, I'm still your best fan, living in Sedona until May 1 and then I'll move back to Flagstaff. I've got every album you ever made. Blessings on your head. Bob Bowser
