"Eric is an incredibly talented and versatile musician, one of the best I've come across in nearly three decades as a musician. His creativity and musical leadership are the standards that I keep in mind for all of my own gigs and groups. In my mind, what sets Eric apart from other talented musicians is his ability to relate to the others he works with: fellow musicians, students, or clients. He is a dynamic performer but also one of the most humble I've ever met. Eric is the consummate professional; anyone considering hiring him as a teacher, band mate, or performer should not hesitate or think twice. "
