This dynamic Duo is on to something here as they navigate through each piece flawlessly. Both Erickson and Carr are master guitarists/soloists and clearly know how to fill the sonic space with amazing playing that flows across the ears like fine wine. At times can be passionate, aggressive and tenacious, hypnotic and passionate - other times fluid and flowing. - Cyrus Rhodes, The Muse's Muse

Following his similarly cool, unique and soulfully urbane 2013 debut Pinnacle, Denver-based composer/guitarist Dave Erickson – recording with the Dave Erickson Project (DEP) – presents an exciting and colorful master class in musical diversity on the instantly infectious CITY NIGHTS. Alternating between sizzling rock/blues licks and laid back seduction via luminous melodic licks, Erickson keeps the set unpredictable as he leaps from jazz to Latin, R&B and even folk influences. It’s the perfect soundtrack to some fun and romantic CITY NIGHTS! ~JONATHAN WIDRAN
This cool quartet hailing from Colorado struts its debut release, Pinnacle, with a great deal of energy and drive. Inspired by the Colorado mountains, the Dave Erickson Project allows us a generous look and listen at contemporary jazz their way. Smooth yet packing a powerful punch where needed; sweet yet spicy when appropriate, the album is a clear satisfier throughout. – Ronald Jackson, The Smooth Jazz Ride
