Album Notes
REACH was produced by Jimmy Haslip of the Yellowjackets, and mixed by Jimmy Haslip and Rich Breen in L.A. and features legendary keyboardist Jeff Lorber on three tracks.

E.S.P. is a tasteful, jazz quartet with a modern sound. Their music has been described as "Yesterday's Bebop, meets Today's Modern Jazz." A combination of traditional jazz feel, great improvisation, fresh grooves and original compositions make E.S.P's sound part jazz, part groove, and part world music.

"Karl, You and the band sound great on the new album. Everyone, including Jimmy Haslip, did a terrific job."
- Peter Erskine

"Artfully performed."
- Tom Schuman, Spyrogyra

Delightfully solid set from a killer crew that has been drinking the water that makes up state New York such a fertile area for several generations of contemporary jazz. Post beboppers that know how to pick the best of everything that has come along since and incorporate it into their sound, this is a high octane, happening date that goes a long way in defining contemporary jazz now. An indie set that can stand toe to toe with anything that has the stamp of the machine on it,. jazzbo ears are about to perk up to something wonderful yet again. Hot stuff.
- Chris Spector, Midwest Record Review

Drummer Karl Sterling and bassist Matthew Vacanti help E.S.P.’s latest effort pop right from the start with quick additions from Grammy-winning keyboard guest Jeff Lorber followed by guitarist John Magnante, sax player Brian Scherer and percussionist John Heard. The album stays interesting, always reaching into a different genre, for another woodwind or for the time signature or taste of an influence you didn’t predict.
—Jessica Novak, Syracuse NewTimes

Refreshing Alternative
I was looking for some new jazz to listen to and found it with E.S.P. In fact I've purchased 2 of their CDs so far and have found them to be a very refreshing alternative to much of the smooth jazz I also listen to - without getting too far out there.....
