Tune into Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Sunday, February 11 at 3:00 p.m. as I feature the straight ahead music of Eric Wyatt. Wyatt is blazing his own trail on his new release Look to the Sky. It is his debut for the Whaling City Sound label. The Brooklyn born saxman is the godson of saxophone collossus Sonny Rollins. Wyatt's playing is both harmonic and creative in the style of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Rollins.
Eric's playing has style, precision and melodic tone that gives him a distinctive sound. Wyatt is joined on the record by excellent musicians Keyon Harold on trumpet, Eric Wheeler on bass, Benito Gonzalez on piano, with Shinnosuke Takahashi and Kyle Poole on drums. Eric will be appearing at the Velvet Note Friday and Saturday night, February 9-10.
