GP_1600x600

80-year-old bass virtuoso Gary Peacock has played with legends like Bill Evans, Miles Davis, and Keith Jarrett including the “Standards Trio” which toured and recorded for more than 25 years. He has also released selective albums as a leader.  His newest ECM release, Now This, continues Peacock’s innovation and prowess on the instrument. Marc Copland, pianist and longtime collaborator, states “In 1960 and ’61, Gary Peacock was arguably one of the tiny handful of a vanguard of innovators on his instrument. In 2015, you can make the same argument.” The trio that includes Copland and Joey Baron on drums revisits classic Peacock tunes, reinvigorates them, and makes them completely new. “Mr. Peacock is an intuitive musician drawn to sonorous melody.” – The New York Times
