An active bandleader, his work as a leader is stylistically diverse and intrepid, presenting solo works, music for jazz quartet, duo for sax/drum, an electric ensemble, and big band. Eric’s signature sound on alto, soprano, tenor, saxophone, and flute has been featured on over fifty CDs. His latest CD Blue Vision, which features Houston Person, is doing well and is introducing Eric and his music to a wider audience.
