This show is a tribute to the great double bassist Gary Peacock who passed in September this year. With a remarkable career, Gary's legacy is a discography featuring some of the key moments in jazz history. The list of musicians he has played with is impressive but I've focused on his ground breaking work with Keith Jarrett, Marc Copland and Paul Bley for this show along with some examples of his work as a leader.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
