Where are you located?
Rome, The Eternal City
Tell us a little about your background...

Hi, I'm Eric Daniel from Boston/Rome and many other places...

Hopefully this is where you become curious about my jazzy nu-soul project "Old Sax Nu Soul" and/or my curious little book "The Saxophone Survival Kit, A Guide for Aspiring Professional Saxophonists...or just anyone" (like you, perhaps)

So have a nice visit and if you have a good time here, remember to tell a friend and absolutely ...drop by often for updates! Have fun, E.


After 30 years of playing sax and flute all over the world with top artists
such as Natalie Cole, Paul Young, Zucchero "Sugar" Fornaciari,
Carl Anderson, Randy Crawford and many others, saxman Eric Daniel,
together with DJ/producer Luca Cucchetti and an All-Star line-up
of "Friends", is droppin some very cool, very sexy nu soul grooves in his first solo album: "Eric Daniel and Friends, Old Sax Nu Soul".

And it's about time!

It all started two years ago, at least the first session happened back then.
(It seems like only yesterday...)
In truth how can you say exactly when a project starts. All the people
involved move through their lives, meeting each other, becoming
friends and evolving individually until something happens that brings them all
together, a catalyst, this project. The mixture was right, a spark flashed and BOOM, you tell me.
Just Natures way I guess!

Each of the 16 tracks is a journey in itself, yet the best way to listen to it
is as a kind of Urban R&B/Nu Soul suite that progressively pulls you
deeper than deep, down to the place where the soul folks meet,
as Nigerian master story teller, Dr.Feelx so aptly describes the vibe
in his intro to the title track Old Sax, Nu Soul.

Soulful, soulful, soulful is what oh so fine and Divine Jenny B is
about on the title tracks lead vocal, not to mention veteran Orlando
Johnsons soul and gospel inspired backing vocals. New York bass
Tim Fritz keeps everything in the pocket as always.
Of course Eric is there too, in the role of Old Saxman in the story.

The Ghetto, a true urban soul odyssey into a free blowing soundscape,
is getting strong response from local radio airplay in the Eternal City.
Its been previewing in exclusive at Rome's leading Urban Black Music station Radio Centro Suono, 101.3fm).

The anticipation is building day by day...

The question on everyone's lips is "where can I buy it?"

Hey Eric..
Please forgive the Late response... Boston Just woke up
from the Looooong winter. (you remember:0) lol..
It is so nice to meet you. Keep in touch!
Your Boston Fam,

















Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.
