E.S.P. is a tasteful jazz quartet whose 2009 album Time’s Up! (SPIDER RECORDS) was featured in JAZZIZ magazine. In 2010, the record won a Syracuse Area Music Award (Sammy) for best jazz and continues to receive airplay in more than 120 cities worldwide. In 2012, E.S.P. was voted “Best Jazz Group” in the Syracuse New Times annual reader’s poll. Their 2011 release, Reach (SPIDER RECORDS), was produced by the Grammy Award-winning bassist of The Yellowjackets, Jimmy Haslip, and features three tracks with legendary keyboardist Jeff Lorber. This year, E.S.P. released Zero Gravity to critical acclaim winning the band its third consecutive SAMMY award. E.S.P. has opened for many big jazz names including Chris Botti, The Rippingtons and Jeff Kashiwa’s Sax Pack among others. Members have also backed jazz greats including The New York Voices, Joey DeFrancesco and Martha Reeves.
JAZZIZ MAGAZINE SAYS: “Clearly inspired by the tradition of true jazz improvisation, yet Time’s Up! glistens with a modern sound.”
