After a long hiatus, the Eric Starr Group is back with a brand new album entitled Such is Life
. The album includes ten new tracks by Eric and features Nelson Starr on vocals, piano, and guitar, Iain Ballamy
on tenor saxophone, Ike Sturm
on bass, and Eric Starr on drums, vibes, and percussion. Also, special guests ETHEL (string ensemble) appear on five tracks. All of the songs, lyrics, and orchestrations are by Starr.
“One cannot help but be impressed by this music. The musicianship is top-notch, the performances unpredictable and full of surprises, and Eric Starr’s writing is consistently inventive.” Scott Yanow
