JAZZ: Traditional Jazz Combo, JAZZ: Bebop
Composer/Piano Player/Vocalist Jim Pearce offers 11 new tunes with a wide range of feels.

The horn section is composed of Eric South and Joe Gransden who are both master improvisers and play with an incredible blend as an ensemble. Herman Burney has one of the greatest bass sounds ever and plays deep in the groove. Paul Fallat plays drums with consummate taste throughout. Rafael Pereira adds spice with percussion on two tracks.
Jim’s previous releases have charted at JazzWeek, CMJ Jazz, Earshot Jazz and Roots Music Report. He’s also been the recipient of numerous awards including Outstanding Achievement in Songwriting and First Place Instrumental Category (Great American Song Contest) and Grand Prize in Jazz Category (John Lennon Songwriting Contest).
“Pearce''s group is nearly flawless” -- All About Jazz
“Jim is an extraordinarily talented musician and those skills are matched by his songwriting abilities. It is easy to see why he has earned many songwriting awards during his illustrious career. His stories and their imaginative lyrics create vivid images that one does not soon forget, or want to. And his piano riffs continue to play in your head long after his music stops.” Roots Music Report
“Jazz composer/pianist Jim Pearce has assembled an impressive canon of songs showcasing his own creative composition prowess and dazzling technical gifts.”
One Way Magazine
