The Eric Person Big Band now in it's second year has been trailblazing with dynamic performances far and wide.

Last years Blue Note performance was given a stellar review in the New York Jazz Record by Russ Musto. He mentioned that "The ensemble, which featured some of New York’s finest players, had a supple airy sound not often heard in a big band." The Eric Person Big Band is featured on his latest CD "Thoughts on God."



Saxophonist and composer Eric Person left his native St. Louis in 1982 looking to see what the New York City jazz scene had to offer. After an initial gig with the John Hicks Big Band, he was soon performing with a diverse array of jazz legends such as Dave Holland, McCoy Tyner, Chico Hamilton, the World Saxophone Quartet, Dave Douglas, Donald Byrd, Houston Person and many others. He's also been featured along side rock icons Vernon Reid, Ben Harper and funkateer Bootsy collins.

In 1993, Person released the first of three albums on Soul Note Records - Arrival, Prophecy, and More Tales to Tell - all of which garnered great reviews from critics. His 2010 release, “The Grand Illusion”, reviewed by critic Donald Elfman of All About Jazz, declared that "Person seems to find something new to say and a different direction to follow with every project he undertakes” In a review of 2007's “Rhythm Edge”, Jazztimes critic Bill Milkowski called Person "a risk-taking improviser, accomplished composer, and inveterate swinger." And his latest cd that features the big band was given 4 1/2 stars in DownBeat Magazine.

Eric will be premiering new arrangements for your enjoyment. This is a performance you do not want to miss!
