Eric Bolvin

“The smooth jazz trumpet idiom has been the stronghold of Ric Braun, Greg Adams, Chris Botti and, in its earliest iterations, Miles Davis and Herb Alpert. With Workin' It,, Bolvin shows he has the goods to stand with those commercially better-known players.” ~Nick Mondello All About Jazz.com

“This disc contains an outstanding variety of compelling music, and it will be Eric Bolvin’s breakout project! WORKIN’ IT is a hit. Highly recommended!” ~Sandy Shore, Smooth Jazz.com

“Bolvin is one hot player, drawing from the inspiration of the trumpet’s masters and turning it into his own sound. In fact, Bolvin has a sound to which many players aspire; and he is a forthright bandleader, composer and arranger.” ~Trevor McLaren - All About Jazz.com

“I have to say that Eric Bolvin is quite impressive. I think he’s on to something here.” ~Ronald Jackson- JazzReview.com

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
