Eric Revis

Primary Instrument: Bass

Born: May 31, 1967    

Eric Revis

Grammy-winning bassist/composer Eric Revis has been one of the most solid and forceful voices in the contemporary jazz scene for over 15 years despite his young age. The deep-running power of his beat, his potent and gorgeous tone, and his dynamic approach to music keeps him in high demands among notable musicians such as Branford Marsalis and Jeff “Tain” Watts.

Born in Los Angeles, CA on May 31, 1967, he grew up listening mostly to funk and rock music. It was not until when he was 14 years of age that he picked up an electric bass and taught himself how to play. After attending Southern University as biology major for a year, Eric relocated to San Antonio, TX where he got a regular gig playing 6 nights a week....

”Eric Revis is one of today's true masters.” —Chris Hovan, All About Jazz

“Voted the Best Debut Disc in 2004” —All About Jazz

“Eric stretches the jazz fabric without ripping it apart. The results are a greatly varied….thoroughly rewarding and entertaining set.” —Jazz Times

“Mr. Revis... along with the drummer Jeff Watts, gives that group its tight, smacking sound. His vision of jazz begins with a strong rhythm section, and he has used Mr. Watts as the drummer on his own first album. But he is also one of jazz's relativists, interested in importing other sounds and forms and rhythms, and to this end he uses a dozen extra guests outside of his group in his original music.” —New York Times

“I've been waiting for this album, and my hunch is confirmed: Eric Revis is an exciting bandleader who can stomp on the bass without overshadowing his ensemble. Eric also goes beyond the expected sounds. Great sounds, and very promising writing!” —David Adler, Downbeat

“Like (Jaco) Pastorius, he plants his flag neither in the past now present of music. Revis chooses to gather from his favorite music both jazz and non-jazz. Quite beautiful. “ —Marc Corroto, All About Jazz

“Revis has a huge sound, unshakable rhythmic confidence and a penchant for cohesive, logical baselines.” —Ted Panken, Downbeat
