In 2019 Eric started a new band as a follow up for “A Traveller’s Tale”. During his Try Out evenings in 2017/2018 in Paradox Tilburg he experimented with line ups in search of the right combination of instruments and musicians. He was looking for the right mix of his blues roots, jazz and americana. A little more experimental en jazz oriented than with A Traveller’s Tale though the connection is clear. Bluesy Improvised Music with space and intimacy and a lot of rom for the musicians to make their mark.
The band consists of the great, multi talented Yannick Hiwat on Violin, off course Aron Raams on Guitar, PTM lead man Joel Botma on Trumpet and PTM’s funky Efe Erdem on Trombone. The recording of the album needed to be postponed because of the Corona Virus. The presentation concert tour will take place in October 2021 though initially planned in February 2021.
