Went to Chicago for the holidays and got to hear Eric and talk with him and his wife at Catch-35. What a great guy and an outstanding bassist! Incredible playing and perfect fit in the mix. Definitely one of the highlights of the trip. Hope to hear and meet some more of the Chicago crew next time I'm there. Our son lives in Chicago and is a cook at LuLa Cafe, so we get up there from time to time. Do yourselves a favor and travel to Chicago sometime to hear and meet him yourself. Enjoyed it Eric!!!
