Bassist GARY PEACOCK, like his contemporary Scott LaFaro in the 60s, is well known for an innovative bass playing style that changed the role of the acoustic bass in jazz.
Not unlike the fiction of the American writer J.D. Salinger, Peacock's compositional output is relatively small, but outstanding-- every piece a gem, with its own style, musical surprises rarely heard in the works of other jazz composers. And that’s the beauty of both Peacock’s tunes and Copland’s interpretations: rest assured, you are not listening to something that’s happened before. “Gary” is the perfect companion album to Copland’s critically-acclaimed “John.”
“A Peacock tune is like a perfect haiku; one wouldn’t want to change a single phrase or note.” --- Marc Copland
