Tell us a little about your background...
Born in Ithaca, New York Karl has spent the majority of his life in the Syracuse, NY area. Having grown up in a musical household, it was a natural thing for Karl to take to music and drums, in particular. Both of Karl's parents attended the Ithaca College School of Music. Karl's father, Bob Sterling is a drummer, composer/arranger, and leader of several successful bands in the Central New York area for many years. His mother, Helen majored in vocal studies at Ithaca College and is also a talented pianist.

It was in 1970 when Karl was 9 years old that he first saw legendary drummer Buddy Rich. At that very point he KNEW the drums were his instrument and started seriously studying and practicing. His first teacher was his father and after 4 years, at the age of 13, he started playing gigs with his dad's band. Karl also met and became friends with drummer Peter Erskine in 1972 at age 11. Peter had just graduated from high school and was on his first tour with the Stan Kenton Band. Karl and Peter have stayed in touch ever since.

Karl attended Onondaga Community College for 2 years majoring in music and studying percussion with John Barker. Karl has also studied drums with Peter Erskine, Danny D'Imperio, Joe Morello, Mike Melito, Wilby Fletcher, and Mick Lewander.

Over the years, Karl has had the good fortune to play with many wonderful musicians and bands in the Syracuse, Rochester, and New York City area's including; ESP, Ronnie Leigh, Nancy Kelly, Dana Marcine, Delbert McClinton, Debbie Gibson, Dino Losito, Steve Odum, Martha Burks, Jerry Z, Joy Adler, Rick Sheppard and "The Drifter's," Jeff Palmer, Evan Knight, David CasT, Devin Garramone, Rick Montalbano, Ron France, Mark Hoffmann, Mark Copani, Larry Arlotta, Mala Waldron, Steve Salerno, Miriam Sullivan, Classified, Eye Level, MOSS, Prime Time, Seaflight, The Nasty Truth, Diamond in the Rough, Dave Hanlon's Cookbook, John Puma, Cookie Coogan, John Spillett, Vinnie Martucci, Steve Rust, Francesca Tanksley, Don Miller, and many others

Also an avid bicyclist, two summers ago Karl and his son, Nick bicycled over 1,700 miles in 14 days to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. Check out the cool video of their arrival in Dallas along with trip photos below. You can also check out the trip site at: bicyclingforlife.org.

PETER ERSKINE'S REVIEW OF THE NEW ESP CD, "TIME'S UP!"

Posted on March 17, 2009 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

"I first met Karl Sterling when his parents brought him to a Stan Kenton Orchestra gig in upstate New York. He was a young drummer. This was 1972. Come to think of it, I was a young drummer at the time, too ... but Karl was younger! Karl's parents were justifiably proud of their son and how well he played. Some thirty five-plus years later, I'm the one who is feeling proud of how well Karl plays: proud that he stayed the course with his drumming, and proud that he matured into such a terrific… Continue

RIP Dave Carpenter

Although many of you may have heard this already, I only became aware of Dave Carpenter's passing a couple of days ago. Sadly, Dave passed away in late June of this year. He was undoubtedly one of the finest bass players of our time. He will be greatly missed. The link below contains an article about Dave from the All About Jazz site:

The Jazz Network Worldwide is comprised of all the subsets of the industry worldwide from managers, agents, publicists, venues, festivals, radio stations, studios, musicians, vocalists, etc. and of course fans.  You can use it as a database by utilizing the tool bar for what you seek to connect and network with.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
