In 2014, Grammy award winning drummer Eric Harland released his first studio album ‘Vipassana’, a creative and fresh combination of familiar modern jazz, hip hop, R&B, and even somewhat psychedelic rock.

Aside from the original track listing, this 2 LP 180 gram vinyl will contain two bonus tracks – an alternate take of Eminence (in 7/4 of course) and Stars. Stars features Chris Turner and James Francies, and is an extension of the hip hop inspired tracks featured on Vipassana. Eric’s Voyager band is a who’s who of modern jazz vanguards, including Taylor Eigsti, Harish Raghavan, Nir Felder, Julian Lage, Walter Smith III, and Chris Turner.

Grammy award winning drummer Eric Harland has established himself as one of the premier jazz musicians of our time. He’s collaborated with artists including John Mayer, Mariah Carey, Kevin Eubanks and Dispatch on over 300 recordings. Eric’s extensive resume includes founding his own production company, Eland Productions, and mentoring as an Artistic Director at SFJazz. He has been recognized in publications like The New York Times, The New Yorker and The Boston Globe. Eric was born in Houston, Texas and is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music.
