Eric Selby

"A master of the beat!  Eric has played on many of my studio recordings where his imagination and styling were as dependable as his precision.  In performance he is as solid on a beat as you will find.  He is the glue in any rhythm section.  Wherever you need him you can rely on him"

“Eric seems to have been born with drumsticks in his hands, that’s how natural creating and maintaining a groove comes to him.  His skill at producing albums of music releases the artist to just focus on creating music.  As a friend and gentleman I only have high praise, admiration and appreciation.”
