Eddie is a superlative exponent of jazz flute and is also an excellent pianist and keyboard player.
Current projects as a bandleader include modern jazz quartet Airborn featuring the amazing guitar virtuoso Rob Luft, and EscherSteps, an exciting, raunchy rock band based in the UK South West.
"As a jazz flautist I take my inspiration from not only the great flautists of the past: James Moody, Joe Farrell, but players of other instruments: John Surman, Kenny Wheeler, Jan Garbarek..."
As a keyboard player he is a regular member of the Will Gregory Moog Ensemble and has also contributed to their highly eclectic repertoire. Eddie's past projects as bandleader include Mister Vertigo, a six-piece modern jazz group which featured the amazing late great Pete Saberton on piano.
The Debussy Mirrored Ensemble, a unique blend of jazz, classical and world musicians explores the influence of the great French composer Claude Debussy. This ensemble, which features jazz singer Brigitte Beraha and classical singer James Gilchrist toured the UK in 2018, culminating in a BBC Radio 3 broadcast and subsequent live album.
In the 1980's Eddie was a writer member of the legendary big band Loose Tubes, contributing importantly to the band's unique sound. This band took the world by storm, recording three albums (and 3 more when they briefly reformed in 2014), and performed internationally with many TV and radio appearances. Eddie continued to perform with and write for the sequel to that band in the 1990's,Django Bates' Delightful Precipice. In the 1990's he also began a close association with South African jazz giant Bheki Mseleku, appearing on Bheki's hugely successful first album Celebration with USA drummer Marvin Smitty Smith. Eddie has added his distinctive flute voice to more recent projects by South African jazz artists Afrika Mkhize and Nduduzo Makathini.
The 90's also saw a collaboration with Ibiza Chill-Out stars A Man Called Adam, which resulted in several classic tracks of the genre on their album "Duende".
