Among the highlights are...Schoor’s tenor on a version of “Birks Works" that is worthy of the Jazz Messengers.

I had the pleasure of performing with Eric Schoor recently and was impressed with his talent and maturity. His playing rings true with feeling and intelligence.
The jewels-under-the-lumpy-rug surprise for me was tenor saxophonist Eric Schoor... He’s one of those brilliant young musicians who seem capable of anything his fingers might conjure.
Eric Schoor was recommended to me as I was seeking a saxophone teacher, and I am delighted with the outcome. I have come to know him as a teacher, a student, an artist, and a friend. As my teacher, I experience his enthusiasm for the process of learning the technique and language needed to play my horn, and his passion is a powerful motivator and inspiration. His journey in music shows that he will always be a student of the art of playing jazz as he searches for excellence. In performance, he plays with melodic phrasing, nimble technique, and harmonic adventure. As a fellow traveler in music, he is a warm and generous friend eager to share his gifts and learn from others. If you want to learn, engage him; if you want to listen don't miss him!
