"Patience is a virtue.... Look before you leap. ... Time is on your side....".
E.E. Pointer was born, raised and schooled in Missouri and resides there today. His parents made his childhood years a wonderful experience for all involved. His brothers and sister are all talented artistic people who owe much to the time they spent in a loving and sharing musical home. He started playing keyboards at the age of 5 and the trumpet at the age of 10. Before beginning a career in music education as an instrumental music teacher, Pointer had various character building work experiences including working on a barge; working at farm labor to a track laborer on the railroad; sacking groceries to working in a library and working as a goldsmith. In his musical career, he has played in pizza joints, in polka bands, brass choirs, concert bands, orchestras, pit bands, jazz ensembles, brass bands, r& b groups, rock bands, blues bands.....in other words, like many other working musicians, Pointer is a trumpet player, composer, and teacher who is constantly looking for new musical challenges.
Pointer has raised a family (a handsome son and a beautiful daughter) and has found a wonderful family extension with his wife's two extraordinary kids (a beautiful daughter and a handsome son), but now just raises dogs with his wife Sally. His inspiration are his experiences. Although time is on no person's side, he HAS been patient.....looking back, he has not taken the recording leap yet, but now is the time to see what else is in store.
"...Better late, than Never..."
