For more than a decade, trumpeter Eric Siereveld has built a reputation as a multifaceted performer, composer and educator. Deeply influenced by the hard bop/post bop tradition, his compositions and improvisations are historically rooted yet forward thinking. His current project, The Organic Quintet, is a fresh take on the classic organ jazz quintets of the 1960’s. This group features NYC guitarist Jonathan Kreisberg, Indianapolis organist Steve Snyder, Madison based tenor saxophonist Tony Barba and Milwaukee drummer Mitch Shiner.
Their upcoming debut recording features all original compositions from the pen of Siereveld and Kreisberg. A veteran of the New York City music scene, in 2014 Eric relocated to Madison, WI to take the position of Instructor of Jazz Trumpet and Director of the Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble at the University of Wisconsin’s Mead-Witter School of Music.

"Trumpeter Eric Siereveld plays with a wonderful sound, swing, and lyricism. On "walk the walk" he has assembled a killer band to perform his fresh perspective on the jazz tradition. It was an honor to be a part of it. Check it out!"
"Eric is a marvelous trumpet player and knows his jazz theory inside out. He was a tremendous help at my Summer Jazz Workshops. Great transcriber, too."
“Eric’s books are an invaluable tool for growth as an improviser. The transcriptions are fantastic, but it’s the biographies, interviews, and notes on each solo that give real context and insight into the art and the artist.”
"Eric is a total pro...on every level. It's been a pleasure to work with him!"
