Words From Others

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

~Scott Yanow (Author of 10 books on jazz and music critic for over 30 years)

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.

~Phil Woods

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.

~Kevin Lynch

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!
