Eric Rasmussen is a saxophonist/composer who relocated to the Phoenix area in the summer of 2007 from New York City. Originally from California, he spent the previous ten years playing in New York City where he was a staple of the jazz community, performing regularly on the East Coast as well as multiple tours of Europe. While in New York, Eric performed frequently with some of the most respected names in jazz including Lee Konitz, Joe Lovano, Donny McCaslin, Billy Hart, and Matt Wilson among many others. In Phoenix, he is in top demand as a sideman and also performs with the collective ensemble Running From Bears and the Eric Rasmussen Quartet, both of which have toured the United States on numerous occasions.

With his own groups, he has recorded for internationally acclaimed jazz labels Steeplechase (three records) and Fresh Sound Records, and as a sideman, he has recorded with Paul Bley, Danilo Perez, Billy Hart, Christophe Schweizer and the Jazz Composers Alliance.
