This is the welcome message for the italian friends:

My dear friends:
Welcome to KHAN'S KORNER. This is a most special moment for me because, with the publication in Italian of these pages, it marks the first time that this work is being shared in another language other than English. I am so pleased that this is taking place in Italy! Over time, we will be sharing with you lead sheets from my recordings as well as some transcriptions of solos. Each time, the written music will be accompanied by my analysis. These analyses can take the form of being almost strictly musical, but will always include some personal remembrances and reflections on the time period and the people who were closely involved. Please enjoy them with my best wishes, and here's hoping that I will be able to greet you all in person, in Italy, very soon!
