One of the most highly praised saxophonists around today, Eric Marienthal has several chart-topping jazz recordings to his resume, which includes 13 solo efforts and hundreds of credits as a sideman. Following a stay in the Disneyland Band, Eric joined Chick Corea’s Elektric Band with whom he recorded six albums and won two Grammy’s plus worldwide tours. Corea’s label also offered Eric an opportunity to release his first solo effort, “Voices of the Heart.” During the 1980s, Eric became one of the most recorded contemporary sax players performing on over 50 albums with Lou Ritenour, Don Grusin, Dave Weckl, Chick Corea, and the Rippington’s. During the 1990s, Marienthal worked on projects with members of the Yellowjackets as well as his own efforts while writing instructional books, first with inspiration from members of the Elektric Band, then followed up with two more books on practicing and improvisational skill development.
Marienthal currently occupies the lead alto chair with one of the world’s most popular big bands, the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band.
