A post in the All about Steve forum got me to do a search on Johns web site. It appears that he is finally putting is putting out a 3 DVD series of master class lessons on how he plays. Until Steve puts one out, you couldn't do better than to get this one as well!
This is very exciting! Not cheap but worth every penny!!!

Actually that is old news, it has been out for like a year now. It is actually really amazing. I learned a lot from it, but still have more to do with it. It starts super easy, but takes you where no one has gone before. Fun and challenging. No shredding. It is all about swing, and playing over a chart. I got up to chapter 10, but can fake my way through chap 11. On screen chart, you play over the backing track and follow a moving cursor over the chord chart. Melodic minor modes are tough. Odd times are tough too. Mixing them? Forget it. No tabs, you have to be able to read, at least chord charts.
