Featuring the Dulcet Tones of the Eric Felton Band

Eric Felten is “a formidable trombonist” with a “voice smooth enough to merit Connick comparisons,” writes JazzTimes. Critics have compared Eric’s “singing to that of Michael Bublé or Harry Connick,” notes Donald Clarke, author of The Penguin Encyclopedia of Popular Music. “But worthy as those gentlemen are, I find Felten’s singing more charming, more personal, more intimate, as though one of your best buddies could sing. He is a crooner with style.”
