Eric Nakanishi

I've been playing alto saxophone for 15 years now. Some honors include: Honorable mention and merit winner in jazz for the National YoungArts Foundation (2015-2016), Runner-up of Portland's PDX Jazz forward Competition (2016) and 3rd place in Vandoren's Emerging Artist Competition (2017), grand prize winner of Eastman Winds' Perform with Mintzer Competition (2016), and winner in saxophone for Yamaha's Young Performing Artist Competition (2018). Played lead alto in Ralph Peterson's GenNext Big Band and recorded two albums (2018-2019).

In 2020 I released my debut album on Bandcamp here: www.ericnakanishi.bandcamp.com/album/introducing

 

The album is also available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube. And if you're interested, I have more music on Soundcloud as well as regular weekly content on Instagram:
