Eric Durham with The Harlem Blues & Jazz Band, MC Phil Schaap, Curator Jazz at Lincoln Center and the late Ms. Johnnie Armstead, Founder of the Calaboose African American History Museum (which is across the Street from the Eddie Durham Park)

I learned to score & notate music from my late iconic dad Eddie Durham (1906-1987)

He drove my band "Creative Collection" to our shows, the first of which was opening at a neighborhood  festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), a show produced by Popsie & The Brotherhood Express.

BROOKLYN  roots...
Known as the "Dynamic Duo" and a best friend for decades GARY DOW (Keith Sweat, New Edition) I introduced him into CAMEO. 
 
We arranged MIND UP TONIGHT  (Melba Moore) wrote
AIN'T NO FUN TO ME (Howard Kenney), and discovered, mentored, toured and co-composed for Lillo Thomas.
 
Dynamic Duo produced this song for OSMOND COLLINS 
(aka Elmo the Magic Christian):
We grew up in band-competitive BUSHWICK, Brooklyn, performing block parties. Some of the Neighborhood local musicians starting out were... just to name a very few Bands: 

TY STEPHENS  (center) (from Harry Belafonte), as a trio we recorded some GREAT music & birthed the Band:       TOPGROOVE
