THE JAZZ IN ME marks the return to original jazz music by producer, keyboardist, and songwriter Eric Copeland. After releasing albums of his own in the 90's, including the funky, synth jazz Cooler and the seminal, laid back Stolen Moments, Copeland began producing albums for national and international artists full-time. In the past few years though, Copeland began retooling some older songs he had written for other artists (My Steps Are Ordered, Come to Me), new takes on classic hymns (Softly and Tenderly, Just As I Am), polishing up a few he had previously released (Have Thine Own Way), and writing new tunes that defined his current place in life (In Between Dreams, On the Side). The result is THE JAZZ IN ME.
Deep in Nashville’s music scene is a music producer who is playing not Country music, but Smooth Jazz. Eric Copeland is an accomplished pianist with a self owned record label. Copeland’s latest release is called, “Stolen Moments”. His music will remind you of Tom Grant and David Benoit. His music is free-flowing and easy to listen to, classic easy listening music.

I love the CD. It fits perfectly into the mainstream of the type of jazz I am looking for at WEMC. It mixes well with our other formats -- classical and inspirational. Thanks. Lynn Scholfield, Program Director WEMC, Harrisonburg, VA
Cooler is a smooth blend of silky vocals and jazzy instrumentation
