Improvisational jazz is a high wire act creating a form of spontaneous composition out of one-take musical conversations.


The group pear, execute perfect balance.


They have one foot firmly planted in the outer worlds of traditional jazz, on songs like jenn 2 sect.1 and jimmy 1a.

And their other foot touches the modern landscape using added vocal treatments on songs like the frenchman and black socks, or a loop of bass and percussion on carl session 2.


When one hears new music for the first time, they're not sure what to expect.


When pear plays, neither do they...
