Eric Allison


"Like Buck Hill in Washington, Bud Freeman in Chicago or Red Tyler in New Orleans, Miami's Eric Allison is one of those gifted jazz saxophonists who settle down in their hometown, where they become local legends even as they are overlooked by the rest of the world." - Geoffrey Himes, Washington Post

"Allison is one of those splendid musical talents who can do just about anything." Zan Stewart, Contributor: Los Angeles Times, Swing Journal

"…a tremendous hunk of entertainment, a fascinating performance by Eric Allison, the reed man…takes the crowd on a goose-pimpling trip. A new kind of High." - Miami News

Voted "Best Jazz Reed Player" by Miami/South Florida Magazine

"Musically, Allison is pure versatility, able to jump from flute to sax, clarinet, probably conch-shell synthesizer when they get around to making one, and his razor wit doesn't hurt a band at all." - The Good Times

"…a fully developed jazzman, mature in his creative expression and completely at home with his gifts. Eric is a master of a variety of styles that constitutes jazz…equally at home whether playing dixieland jazz classics, earthy blues, bebop, or contemporary jazz/rock…reflects an awareness of blues tradition seldom encountered in musicians of his generation." - Jack Sohmer, Contributor: Downbeat, Jazz Times, Cadence

"He's a powerful soloist on four instruments, a first-rate composer and arranger, and a capable bandleader who can create a savory stew out of almost any musical ingredients. Allison's funky, danceable tunes always have one foot in the groove. …Allison is a true jazz musician with serious chops." Matt Schudel, Sun-Sentinel

"…Allison demonstrates a natural exuberance in both his demeanor and his music. … [a] jaunty, unbridled playing style… Allison's playing is informed and…carefree. His musical statements command authority and respect, but their message is uplifting, optimistic, and accessible." - Larry Getlen, New Times

"Tenor saxophonist Eric Allison is traditional in the best sense of the word." - Bob Weinberg, XSmagazine
