Bassist Eric Markowitz, born and raised in New Jersey, never thought much of growing up 30 minutes away from the jazz mecca of New York City. That all changed when half way through his college studies in St. Louis, he met world renowned jazz drummer Joe Charles. Eric spent the next few years apprenticed under local St. Louis legends Joe Charles and saxophonist/composer Jimmy Sherrod.

Markowitz quickly became one of the leading jazz bassists in St. Louis, voted 4 years in a row best jazz group in St. Louis while playing with the David Stone Trio.

Having decided that the St. Louis Jazz community was just too small, he moved to San Francisco in 2004, and was quickly integrated into the local jazz scene, performing with players such as Patrick Wolff, Adam Shulman, Scott Larson, Jeffrey Burr, Jay Standards, Joe Cohen, Smith Dobson, Scott Foster, and Vince Lateano.

He appeared here previously with the Keith Saunders Trio.

Bay Area drummer (and saxophonist, and vibraphonist) Smith Dobson has worked with jazz legends like Bobby Hutcherson, Red Rodney, John Handy, Sheila Jordan, Red Holloway, Pete and Conte Condoli, Phillip Harper, and Ben Goldberg, and performed at major Bay Area venues, such as the SFJAZZ, Monterey Jazz Festival, Yoshi's, Great American Music Hall, California Jazz Conservatory, Stanford Jazz Workshop, and Club Deluxe.

He appeared here previously with the Evan Francis / Darren Johnston Quartet, the Matt Renzi Cello Quartet, and the Keith Saunders Trio.
