Together in the Pearcy / Gratzmiller Jazz Quintet, they’ve created an album that has energy, soul and a slight sense of the unpredictable. Over the Edge is full of references to classic jazz elements, bebop vocabulary and old fashioned blues with use of today’s improvisational techniques. There is an old school musical feel but also interesting, more modern improvisational techniques which has appeal to traditional jazz listeners and those seeking something more redolent of the new, energetic jazz vibe which is strong today.”
