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.
