Bobo Stenson Trio: War Orphans

Read "War Orphans" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Peacock, best known perhaps for his long tenure in pianist Keith Jarrett's “Standards Trio," has played on numerous Copland recordings, including At Night (Sunnyside, 1992), Softly (Savoy Jazz, ...

Once again, the chronic health problem that has reduced my writing pace to a crawl continues without any respite.

But he always returns to the acoustic trio format that brought him to prominence. It began with a series of five Art Of The Trio albums ...
