Editorial Reviews

Eric Darius is THE rising star on the smooth jazz scene. Though still in his early 20s, he has already garnered six Top 10 Smooth Jazz radio hits and spent more than 30 weeks on the Top 10 Billboard contemporary jazz charts!

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.

Okay, now every artist can't do this, but this is the album where Eric seemed to demonstrate that he was going to be very innovate and creative with all the rest of his albums and was going to go left of center from his previous work. Also, at first I wasn't feeling this album at all and actually put it away for several months. However, one day I eventually listened to this album and was able to get into Eric's groove on this album.

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.

This cd is nice, lots of smooth flowing tracks and very easy listening music for relaxing or on the highway. This cd is a must have if you are an Eric Darius fan.

Although the tribute to Haiti blew the other songs away and the island flavor was a bit refreshing. All in all, not his best work. Seems he was attacked by the fame monster to which his wounds did not recover in time for this release.

This is the BEST jazz cd I have ever purchased and I cant wait to purchase another cd by Eric D today. He is Wanderfully Fantastic artist. We met Eric at a jazz concert in San Diego and his performance was out of sight great. We also took pic w him and he's a real cool young man too.

Eric Darius has one of the best sounds that I have heard in a long time. I enjoy his movements, some time soft and relaxing other time strong and long lasting. It's almost erotic. I just want more!!! Excellence in innovation!!
