 Review By: Andrew Reeves


Sax-man Eric Darius once again demonstrates his ability to capture his audience and hold them from the first track to the last. On A Mission, released June 29, 2010, samples hip-hop, R&B, funk, reggae and fusion for a collection of music clearly ideal for a new generation of jazz lovers. As a young artist, Darius continues to position his body of work to appeal to a constantly evolving fan base. His versatile songwriting abilities are brought to bear with new material he penned for the album, along with an arrangement of Herbie Hancock’s classic Butterfly.    Finishing the set is a musical tribute to his roots with a song honoring the victims of Haiti.
Darius brings all the energy and vitality of his live performances to an album that is as cool as it is unique. In the shadow of such jazz greats as George Benson and Grover Washington Jr., Eric Darius proves once and for all that the future of contemporary jazz is truly in good hands.
