"Now This" Gary Peacock, Marc Copland, Joey Baron
Over the span of five decades, Gary Peacock has established himself as one of the most versatile and talented bass players in jazz. One of his earliest influences was avant-garde saxophonist Albert Ayler, with whom Peacock performed and recorded in the 1960s. His music has also been greatly affected by his studies of Eastern music and philosophy. Since the 1980s, Peacock has been adding contemporary twists to old standards with pianist Keith Jarrett's trio including drummer Jack DeJohnette. Peacock’s current group is a leaderless, cooperative and exploratory trio that The Boston Globe describes as, “transcendent… jazz the way it was meant to be – improvised.” Pianist Marc Copland, who The New York Times calls, “a pianist drawn to dark harmonic shading,” was early considered an heir to Bill Evans but has gone on to, “quietly redefine jazz piano and the art of the trio on the cutting edge.” (Allaboutjazz.com). Rounding out the trio, drummer Joey Baron combines technical acuity with a deep sense of groove. Best known for his work with Bill Frisell, Stan Getz, John Zorn and guitarists John Scofield, John Abercrombie and Jim Hall, Joey has also performed with musicians outside of jazz including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, David Bowie, Tony Bennett, Laurie Anderson and Al Jarreau.
