Official Website : When he first started playing his saxophone in 5th grade he really had no idea what all that even meant. Well, after having performed in over 60 different countries, recording 10 solo CD’s and playing on hundreds of other records, films, television shows and commercial jingles, Eric has definitely exceeded those musical goals..
@allmusic : In 2012, Marienthal’s It’s Love was released on eOne Entertainment, on the very same day as Lorber’s revamped Jeff Lorber Fusion’s Galaxy was released; the saxophonist is a member of that band.
@last.fm : Eric’s “Oasis” CD hit the top 5 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart. Shortly after that, Eric was voted as being one of the year’s “Favorite Alto Sax Players” in Jazziz Magazine’s Reader’s Poll along with David Sanborn and Phil Woods.
