Eric McPherson

Born and raised in New York, Eric was immersed in music from birth on: Richard Davis, his godfather and an icon among jazz bassists, was present at his birth. It was Richard who suggested he be named after Eric Dolphy. Before Eric was three months old, his mother--a superb dancer-choreographer deep in the jazz scene--was taking him, strapped to her back, to rehearsals and performances.

Mark Harvey Group, Thumbscrew & Rez Abbasi

Read "Mark Harvey Group, Thumbscrew & Rez Abbasi" reviewed by Maurice Hogue

No matter who pianist Russ Lossing chooses for his various trio projects, they always work! His new Mood Suite, with Mark Helias on bass and Eric McPherson on drums is excellent. Although Lossing has played with Helias and McPherson over the past two decades, they've never played as a trio before. Musical osmosis must work, because ...

Read "3x3: Piano Trios: January 2020" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Geir Åge Johnsen/Fredrik Sahlander/Bernt Moen 1+1=3 Losen Records 2019 What exactly does this title signify? It isn't quite clear, seeing as there are three players here and each counts as a positive one in any equation.

Will Sellenraad - Eric McPherson - Rene Hart: Greene Street Vol.1

Read "Greene Street Vol.1" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Considering how well Will Sellenraad clearly knows the history and ins-and-outs of jazz guitar, he might seem to be making a statement by using a title so reminiscent of Grant Green's classic Green Street (Blue Note, 1961).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
