Album Notes
Outer Reaches is Peterson’s homage to the rich New Jersey Jazz history he is both influenced by and an integral part of. The band does fresh arrangements of the songs from that CD stretching the boundaries of the vocabulary of what most people think Jazz Organ to be. This band re-introduces and showcases Pat Bianchi as a major voice on Organ as well as two more incredible young talents, Josh Evans on Trpt and Jovan Alexandre on Tenor.

Fives years ago Ralph Peterson met organist Pat Bianchi in Denver Co. At a clinic and gig at UC Boulder. Immediately upon meeting an accord was struck between the two musicians. They have a connection that is sometimes telepathic and this group Unity is the platform to showcase their amazing musical connection.

Peterson’s history with jazz organ goes back more then 25 years to the great clubs of New Jersey like Mr. West and Sparky J’s. Here Peterson cut his teeth with musical greats like Leo Johnson, Gene Phipps, Eddie Gladden, and Dave Eubanks. He was deeply influenced as well by the Great Larry Young and his Unity recording.

This release of OUTER REACHES also marks the launch of Peterson's own Onyx Music Label.
