“Ernie Krivda almost blew the sun out of the sky…still at the top of his game…”
-Detroit Metro Times
The journey in music that began under his musician father Lou’s influence from almost birth to his tutelage at age 6 has taken him from polka bands in his early teens, classes at The Cleveland Institute of Music, the bands of Cleveland greats Eddie Bachus and Bill DeArango in the jazz clubs of Cleveland, to a life in music that includes the mentorship of Cannonball Adderley, tours with Quincy Jones, performances with musicians such as Ell Fitzgerald, Phil Woods, Sarah Vaughn, Buddy DeFranco, Groove Holmes, Terry Gibbs, John Faddis, The Dizzy Gillespie Orchestra, David Sanborn, Jackie Wilson and concerts with his own groups at Jazz Clubs and Festivals all over the world.
The musical journey goes on with a new recording for Capri records on the horizon in 2015 and touring that will give audiences an opportunity to hear “The sound that sets him apart” (Applegate music review), and the musician that the venerable Jazz Journal (of the UK) calls “both classic and brand new” ………The Legend Continues….!
