The new Jim Pearce CD is Prairie Dog Ballet--intense, all-original, acoustic jazz featuring world-class musicians. Jim Pearce is an award winning Pianist/Composer/Vocalist. Prairie Dog Ballet is a sure fire follow up to Jim's last CD Washington Square Park which was a finalist in The Independent Music Awards for Jazz Album of the Year. Judges for that contest included Terence Blanchard, Norah Jones, Paquito D'Rivera and other industry leaders.
