Eric Seddon Eric Seddon

Eric Seddon is a clarinetist, saxophonist, and jazz composer based in Cleveland, known for the big, warm sound of his vintage instruments and his blues informed, lyrical lines.


”Seddon, who has a large tone and extroverted style on clarinet...dominates the music, playing withg infectious spirit and creativity within the classic format. His songs, which includes a tribute to the late Acker Bilk (”Goodbye Bowler Hat”), are natural fits for New Orleans jazz bands...”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
