Michael Eaton Shrine + 5 City Midwest Tour

Tenor and soprano saxophonist Michael Eaton has impacted contemporary jazz since his 2008 arrival in Brooklyn. Hailing from a Kansas City suburb, Eaton studied at Indiana University. Around NYC, he has worked in diverse settings with singers, minimalists, African percussion, Miles Davis type funk/fusion, or instrumental rock cover bands. Since collaborating with mentor David Liebman, Eaton is now doing his own original compositions and sounds like a darker, ebony-toned version of Liebman. Based on the release of his debut recording for the Destiny label, Individuation, Eaton's music has taken off. He opens on this night with his quintet—trumpeter Jon Crowley, keyboardists Brad Whiteley and Dorian Wallace, bassist Daniel Ori and drummer Shareef Taher—then joins Wallace's Free Sound Ahn-Somble. - Hot House Magazine January 2015
