On A Mission, Eric's debut for Shanachie, teams him with the top producers in R&B and Jazz: Rex Rideout (Ledisi, Angie Stone, Kem), Darren Rahn (Dave Koz, Wayman Tisdale) and Micah Otano (Brian Culbertson). Together they forge a new fusion of Smooth Jazz and Urban that continues Eric's "mission" of spreading his musical message.

But nowadays, this is one of my favorite Eric Darius albums, and many of the strong, uptempo songs on the album make me think about the slogan from the old deodorant soap commercial when they say, "the eye opener." :) Songs such as the explosive "Settin' It Off," "Let's Go," and "Move To It."
I also love the mid-tempo "Soulful Stride," "Uptown Swagger," and "Jean Marie's Groove." And the straight-ahead jazz song "Butterfly" written by Herbie Hancock featuring Rick Braun is just fabulous. Even if you aren't a straight-ahead jazz fan. :)
And not to go through all of the songs, I also love the slow-tempo melancholy, "My Prayer For Haiti." What a beautiful, well written song.
