O’s Notes: At 21 years old, Eric is one of the newer voices on the smooth jazz sax scene. He packs a punch as strong as anyone does on this mix of seductive ballads, mellow mid-tempo songs like “Let It Flow” and “In The Pocket” as well as upbeat jams. He’s got a soulful swing in his style that should bring him success. The band holds things together well. We particularly liked the title track and the cover of “Love TKO”. It’s so easy to enjoy that you’ll find yourself instantly humming along.
