"Pianist-composer-arranger Gay Pearson is a confessed latecomer to the jazz scene, discovering Miles Davis and jazz combos just a decade ago. She exibits estimable talent on her first album, a trio outing with bassist Tyrone Brown and drummer Jim Miller that delivers creative versions of Ellingtons''s "Caravan", Jobim''s "How Insensitive" and Eddie Harris'' " "Freedon Jazz Dance."
Guest Richie Cole adds his capricious alto to "If I Were a Bell" and "I Wish I Knew How It Feels To Be Free," and sister Beth Pearson''s cello complements "Someone To Watch Over Me." Especially notable are the gospel-imbued original title track and the pianist''s funky merger of Rachmaninoff''s Second Piano Concerto and Al Jarreau''s "Boogie Down" into "Rachy Boogies Down." Gay Pearson is a superb addition to the jazz world."
