Ergh! Just connected w/the web site and so sad we missed your 1/15 event at the Palladium! :( What's happening in LA? Aah, one more reason to visit CA again where we have many friends up and down the coast and a kid in SF (remember Evan?).
Hope all is going well for you. Would love to hear your voice/piano again soon.

I met you afteer your performance at the Side Door of the Palladium on Jan 15. I have been to all your appearances at the Hangar First Monday Jazz Jams and am a member of the Al Downing Jazz Society. I got up the nerve to come up to you because I wanted to tell you that you are the very best Jazz pianist I have ever heard in all my 70 years! And that includes Chicago where I grew up, London, where I was born in the Blitz and Boston, where I lived for the last 40 years until I moved to St. Pete to retire. I always identified with Viet Nam because being in the Anti Vietnam War movement defined my coming of age and my anti war activism for the rest of my life. I saw Ms. Saigon in Providence R.I. and was spellbound by the production, especially the song and concept "Children of the Dust".
So, I just wanted to tell you that I have followed and loved jazz all of my life and you are the VERY BEST I HAVE EVER HEARD! I will be following you and your progress from now on being so glad to have discovered you in beautiful St. Petersburg.
All my best wishes for your continued success,
From a very loyal and adoring Fan,

Kym, you are really going to be missed!! I hope you have much success in the Los Angeles area.
Hopefully, I can make it on Sunday to the Palladium.
I looked up Engelebert's tour schedule. Saw one of your gig dates is in Highland CA. Used to live about 2 miles from the casino.

Kym, What a surprise! I saw the ad for the Palladium in the paper - Ginger and I will be there. Meanwhile, we will truly miss your music in Tampa, as well as your friendship (at least locally). All the best to you - Chris

I knew you many years ago in Las Vegas. I used to have the pleasure of listeneing to you play for a restaurant I managed called Malibu Chans, I was the General Manager at the time. I love you web site and would like to know how I may purchase some of your music. I want to share the best music I've ever heard with my husband. He is a Bass player and a Cantor for St. Elizabeths in town and I know your sound won't fall on deaf ears!
Look forward to finding your music soon:)

Dear Mr. Purling,
My piano tuner, Bob Horton, mentioned that you are an excellent performer and jazz instructor.
I am looking for jazz piano instruction. While I have played for many years and I do know music theory, to some degree, I am a beginner when it comes to blues and jazz. Yet that\'s my passion.
Would you be able to communicate to me regarding lessons?

Please contact me regarding Mr. Purling's (w/orchestra) availability on Nov.12, 2011. Lazydays Employee Foundation is hosting a charity ball. Our proceeds go directly to helping at risk and homeless children in Tampa Bay.

Hope you are well and everything is going great. Just thought we'd let you know, Warwick, I, Aasha and Kyah, are flying into LA on the 26th June (only a couple of weeks time). We are staying on the west coast e.g. LA, San Francisco etc for approx 2/12 weeks and then driving to Vegas arriving approx 13th July and depart 15th July in the evening to NYC. Not sure where you are at the moment, but didn't want to at least not let you know that we will be in the States and love to catch up and offer to buy you dinner or a coffee!!!!!
No problems if it is a busy time for you, just thought we would touch base.
Love and best wishes

My husband, Jim, and I met you at Mitchel's Fish House. You were kind enough to extend an invitation to the Beetles Concert you did at the Tampa Club with some friends. Have been unable to find your CD's & would LOVE to purchase some for Jim's Birthday. Help! Thanks, <3 Linda

Hopefully you'll remember as the "Angel Eyes" requestor that, at your insistence, played it for YOU at Mitchell's a few months ago! I'd love to find out where you are performing right now, and also talk to you about maybe performing at my wedding and/or reception!
Feel free to email or call me at 813-838-7558. Thanks, and hope to hear from you soon!
