While best known for his sideman work with Dave Holland and Chico Hamilton, internationally acclaimed saxophonist Eric Person is an inventive bandleader in his own right. A capable section man who has held down the alto chair in big bands led by David Murray, McCoy Tyner, and John Hicks, Person gets an opportunity to show off his talent as a composer/ arranger fronting his own 12-man unit, the Eric Person Big Band. Featuring some of New York’s finest players, the ensemble boasts a supple, airy sound not often heard in a big band.
