Dean Peer is internationally recognized for his use
of bass harmonics. His album UCROSS, released in 1991,
was the first completely solo electric bass album in
worldwide distribution. It was hailed by Stereophile
magazine as an audiophile classic, and Bass Player magazine
called UCROSS an extravaganza of ringing notes, chords
and clusters, rating the bass performance an A.

the best records of the year by Jazz Times, and
features contributions on saxophones by Paul McCandless.
