For over thirty years, Eric Person has been committed to composing, recording and performing dynamic and innovative music. His personal sound on alto, soprano, tenor saxophones and flute have been featured on more than fifty recordings. He studied at the St. Louis Conservatory of Music and has taught and performed internationally. He has a broad range of experience performing with the masters of modern creative music, such as Dave Holland, McCoy Tyner, Chico Hamilton, Wallace Roney, Ronald Shannon Jackson, World Saxophone Quartet, John Hicks et al. He established the band Meta-Four and started his own label Distinction Records, and his releases include Extra Pressure, Live at Big Sur, and Reflections. His forthcoming releases include The Grand Illusion, Thoughts on God, and DuoScope. Of his music, Donald Elfman writes: “saxophonist Eric Person seems to find something new to say and a different direction to follow with every project he undertakes,” and he has been called “a “risk-taking improviser, accomplished composer and inveterate swinger” by Bill Milkowski of Jazztimes.
