Jim Pearce: Never Open with A Ballad

Read "Never Open with A Ballad" reviewed by John Barron

Musicians like Jim Pearce forge ahead anyway, producing uncompromised, original music. Never Open with a Ballad is a well-conceived showcase for the multi-talented Atlanta-based pianist, vocalist and composer.
