Eric Lilley Trio

Eric Lilley was born the 17th of November, 1954 in Corona, California to Neil, a Marine lieutenant 2 weeks from discharge and his wife of 2 years , Donna. Donna was a piano teacher, church organist and life of the party. After brief stops in Kansas City and Lincoln, Nebraska the family settled in the Denver area where Eric has lived, left and returned many times. Other residences have included Boston where he attended the Berklee College of Music, Houston, Phoenix, Nashville and Branson, Missouri as well as more than a dozen cruise ships of various ports and destinations.

I've known Mark Diamond and Paul Romaine since the early 1980s' and knew I wanted them for this project from the conception. Mark is one of Colorado's most in demand bassists whose interest in music is as eclectic as mine. A few of his credits include Richie Cole, Earl Klugh, Fred Wesley and James Moody.

Paul is every bit as much in demand as Mark as one of Colorado's premier jazz drummers. He has performed with Woody Herman, Eddie Harris, Benny Golson, Eddie Gomez, Clark Terry and Dave Grusin to name a few.

I've heard Paul and Mark playing together in many different situations and knew they would have the cohesiveness I needed. Mark Derryberry at Derryberry Studio provided a great Yamaha piano and relaxed atmosphere to record in. I dropped myself into the mix and the result is this album.
