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 & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
