Eric Person

Eric Person is a renowned American saxophonist. He is prolific as a composer, and ubiquitous as a musical collaborator and artist.


His work as a leader is stylistically diverse and intrepid, presenting solo works, music for jazz quartet, duo for sax/drum, an electric ensemble and big band.

Over his nearly forty years as a musician in New York, Person has had the good fortune to perform with the vanguard of the jazz world namely McCoy Tyner, Dave Holland Wallace Roney, and cutting edge artists such as Vernon Reid, Ronald Shannon Jackson, and the World Saxophone Quartet.

Eric’s signature sound on alto, soprano, tenor, saxophone and flute has been featured on over fifty CDs, from Chico Hamilton to Ben Harper to Bright Dog Red.
