Eric Person Trio, Alex Smith (organ), Tony Jefferson (drums) at The Beanrunner Cafe
Saxophonist Eric Person is setting a new standard in sound and his band Meta-Four is nothing short of dynamic. For over twenty years, Eric has been committed to composing, recording and performing contemporary American music. He plays the alto and soprano sax and the flute and is featured as a leader and sideman on more than 30 recordings. His broad range of experience with Dave Holland, McCoy Tyner, Chico Hamilton, Ronald Shannon Jackson, the World Saxophone Quartet, and John Hicks, have all contributed greatly to his mature alto and soprano sound and his skills as an arranger and composer.
His CD, "Thoughts On God" received rave reviews and John Murphy, of Downbeat Magazine, gave it 4 ½ stars.
"One of the finest modern jazz outings of 2012." Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz
