Eric Harland graciously sits down with me, to share some of where he's come from, practice 'routines' and how he thinks of putting together his sounds/rigs for the gigs he plays... Eric - was in town with one of today's hottest and most forward thinking saxophonists, Chris Potter...

I had just had the great fortune to catch these guys the night before...

The new record Chris Potter's "Circuits" features this trio of virtuosic players, with Eric Harland on drums, and James Francis- keyboards...

I'll probably always remember that this was taped on an afternoon during a blizzard... the band, still to get word whether they were going to do just one set that night or a regularly scheduled second show - due to hazardous travel... In stark contrast to the cold... this band's performances were Smokin' Hot !!!

Without further adieu, Eric's interview...
