“Pearce’s seventh release as a leader, “You Are an Edgy Visionary Seer “is an engaging and well-rounded portrait of this uniquely talented songwriter, vocalist and pianist at his mature and creative peak.” All About Jazz/ Hrayr Attarian

“There exists a unique and storied subset of jazz artists who pen the most clever music and lyrics this side of Tin Pan Alley and way that side of modern-day Nashville. Besides Bob Dorough and Dave Frishberg, who are in a class by themselves, are Mose Allison and Jim Pearce, who are also part of that rarefied class.” All About Jazz/ C. Michael Bailey

“Pearce proves himself a highly adept leader who approaches every aspect of his music with vision and integrity.” All About Jazz/ John Barron

“Jim Pearce is in possession of a special type of “triple threat.” I don’t know if he can dance or act. That’s not the kind I mean. What Pearce certainly can do is sing, play piano and write great music.” Jazz Improv Magazine/ Dave Miele
