Still putting details together on my jazz recording.

Take care, enjoy, and peace!!


Hello all. Just wanted to say hello and update some news.
I'm sorry for the delay of the "Saxophone Journal" blues' solos. I've been pretty busy lately, but promise to finish them soon.
I played some clarinet recently on an independent film, composed by Gordy Habb. Great writing from an "up and coming" film composer. Why is that instrument so dang hard to play??
I've also been in the works on my first jazz CD. As anyone who has done one knows, it's a LOT of work! I'm in the process of finishing up the tunes, working on arrangements, and getting ready to book the studio. I'm pretty excited since this has been a long wait! Take care, and practice!!


Thanks for checking out the site, and please come back as more stuff and info. will be added all the time.

Hello to my Saxophone Journal reading friends! Welcome. To address some emails I've received, I'm going to transcribe some of the solos from the Masterclass and post them here soon. This will also be a good way to learn how to play the styles. Time and space prevented me from doing this before, but now I can put them here! Thanks for the positive emails I've received!


Eric's CD Masterclass "How To Play The Blues" is in the Sept/Oct. issue of the SAXOPHONE JOURNAL.


Also, Eric has just finished his second book, "25 Great Sax Solos", which should be out late this fall.

His first book "101 Saxophone Tips" is available through your local music store or at Amazoncom.
