The Artist

Erik Deutsch

If you love jazz...
Decades by Erik Deutsch is self-descriptive, exploring music from the decades of jazz. From CTA by Jimmy Heath taking us back to the 50’s, to Erik’s own modern composition, Emor Eterno, this jazz collection covers lively, sultry and everything in between. New York jazz heavy-hitters, Dean Johnson (upright bass) and Tony Mason (drums) join world-touring Erik Deutsch (piano) to make an absolutely stunning album. Recorded and mixed in DSD, Decades is available on SACD and downloads
