Eric MarienthalAfter over 20 years since first breaking onto the contemporary jazz scene as a member of Chick Corea's Elektric Band, Eric Marienthal is a true global phenomenon.

One of the most in-demand session musicians in Jazz, Marienthal has worked with a wide variety of pop superstars, including Elton John, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, Dionne Warwick and Johnny Mathis.

On his latest solo effort Just Around The Corner, Marienthal's passion and versatility shine with tracks such as "Times Square," which features the keyboards and programming of co-writer Lu, and the old school ambience and synth echoes of "Flower Child", which displays the melodic chemistry Marienthal shares with long-time collaborator Jeff Lorber.

"Just Around The Corner is a melody-driven, straightforward pop instrumental date that honestly reflects the musical groove I'm in right now" says Eric about the new release.
