Alto sax player Jeff Pearring’s musical focus started with numerous Ska and Reggae bands. This culminated in the 2002 split release Reggae Showdown where Jeff was featured on the song Country Boy. Jeff moved to New York City in the spring of 2002, and began studying with the innovative pianist, composer, and musical guide Connie Crothers in 2005. Jeff has released four albums as Pearring Sound, and Pearring Sound continues to perform as trios, quartets, quintets, and a double trio all formed from the thoughtful combination of world class musicians. From 2018-2020 Jeff Pearring curated the “Instrumental Underground” musical series at the Brooklyn based Mirror tea house. In 2020 a collaboration with the King of Independent Animation, Bill Plympton, resulted in the release of the animated music video “Odd Duck.” Odd Duck has received awards at over 10 film festivals internationally.
