ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric Frazier was born in Harlem, New York City. He was raised in Brooklyn, New York in a family of eight children. He ran track and road races for 27 years. His love of the physical culture and creative expression led him to
the study of the Conga Drum, Djembe Drum and African Dance.


Eric's Band plays a potpourri of music including Jazz, Salsa, R&B. Calypso and Blues. Each of these genres are represented on his latest CD "Smile Inside Your Soul;" released on Eric's own record label (This CD is a best
seller of new releases for Tower Records in New York City). Eric's first CD is entitled "Count Your Blessings."


Eric hosted his own television talk show called "Cultural Horizons" on Queens Public Access Cable TV in 1998. He has made personal appearances on The Hambone Cable TV show (BCAT), The Camille Yarborough Manhattan Cable TV Show
along with his gifted and talented daughter Du Ewa Frazier (author of "Shedding Light On My Journey's and CEO of Litnoire Publishing Company), The Jazzy Jazz Show (BCAT-TV), Caribbean Soul (BCAT-TV), and BET Jazz Discovery
and Bet On Jazz Cable TV shows. In addition, Eric has appeared on numerous radio stations across the USA.


Eric has performed in such historic New York venues as the famous Rainbow Room, Madison Square Garden, and The Famous Apollo Theater. He has performed in great Jazz venues of New York, Chicago, New Jersey, St. Louis and Washington DC and numerous Universities and colleges.


Eric's interest in Dance, Music, Theater and Writing are evident in his background. Otis Gould, former Chi-lites drummer and college friend, taught him to play Congas for bands. He learned the Djembe drum from Ibrahim, famous
master teacher from The Dance Company of Senegal. Eric was inspired in dance by his brother, the gifted and talented Gary Ellis Frazier, formerly with The Alvin Ailey Dance Company. Eric has performed with such dance groups as
Katherine Dunham, Olatunji, Charles Moore, Chief Bey, The International African Ballet, and Varshaa Bardhan and Chandra Baneree of The Tanusree Shankar Dance Company of India (Headed by Ananda Shankar, son of the great Ravi
Shankar).


Eric was a solo artist for the play "Wemmins of the Dark" at the historic Henry Street Playhouse in Soho New York City and went on tour in the New York Metropolitan area performing his own poetry for The Rennick Playright
Company. Eric is the author of the following books of poetry: "Family, Friends and You," "Thought of a black Child" and "Black Gold and You."


Eric has played with Jazz artists such as Reggie Workman, Pharaoh Sanders, Carlos Garnett, Jack McDuff, Bob Cuningham, Bill Saxton, Stanley Banks and others.


Max Roach, renowned as the greatest Jazz Drummer in history, first heard Eric as a solo artist on October 25, 1998. He was inspired to get on the Mic and tell the audience to savor the moment because they were in the midst of a great conga player.


Eric's latest CD "Smile Inside Your Soul," is catapulting him to the very top of the music movers and shakers. We are confident that this CD will add enhanced pleasure to your every listening moment.
