Gary Peacock Trio at the Regattabar Jazz Club

Read "Gary Peacock Trio at the Regattabar Jazz Club" reviewed by Nat Seelen

Gary Peacock Trio Regattabar Jazz Club Cambridge, MA November 10, 2017

Veterans' Day was an appropriate date for this show, which was indeed a concert of veterans. Gary Peacock served in the army in the 1950s, and the three musicians on stage that evening could count over 150 years combined on the bandstand, side ...

Dálava, Gordon Grdina and Mikkel Ploug: Songs Old, and Sounds New

Read "Dálava, Gordon Grdina and Mikkel Ploug: Songs Old, and Sounds New" reviewed by Mark Werlin

Strangeness--a word that connotes foreignness, otherness, and a sense of unease when confronted by the unfamiliar. The sound of recognizable musical forms may attract us, in the same way we are drawn to familiar faces or voices. The sound of a foreign language may set us on the alert; syllables we do not recognize, meanings we ...

Albert Ayler: Copenhagen Live 1964

Read "Copenhagen Live 1964" reviewed by John Sharpe

Even more than 50 years on, there's still never been anyone quite like Albert Ayler. Or for that matter like this 1964 Quartet, which was one of the few ensembles during his career to match the tenor saxophonist against equally forward thinking peers. Bassist Gary Peacock was fresh from pianist Bill Evans' Trio, cornetist Don Cherry ...

Karl Ackermann's Best Releases of 2017

Read "Karl Ackermann's Best Releases of 2017" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

2017 was an exceptional year for artists who elude convention; veterans such as Wadada Leo Smith and relative newcomers like Abdul Moimême gave us unique musical insights. It was an outstanding year for solo recordings. Along with Smith and Moimême, Rob Mazurek, Matthew Shipp, Irish multi-instrumentalist Aine O'Dwyer, Cuban pianist Aruán Ortiz, Italian pianist Stefano Battaglia, ...

Anouar Brahem: Blue Maqams

Read "Blue Maqams" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Oud-master Anouar Brahem's instantly intoxicating, Blue Maqams, caps off a truly remarkable year for ECM Records. Just think, the label's release schedule this year included essential recordings by Benedikt Jahnel Trio's The Invariant, Django Bates' breakthrough The Study of Touch, Colin Vallon Trio's Danse, Vijay Iyer Sextet's Far From Over, and Gary Peacock's Tangents, all of ...

Gary Peacock Trio
Jazz Standard
New York, NY
November 7, 2017

Anyone old enough to remember when special effects in films were handmade has probably noticed the lack of apparent weight in modern CGI. Compare, for example, the cityscapes of Blade Runner 2049 to those of its 1982 predecessor, ...

Gary Peacock: Tangents

Read "Tangents" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Throughout his storied career, bassist/composer Gary Peacock has gone a long way to make the bass an emotive and compelling solo instrument. Yet, when one looks back on--or better yet--listens back to the myriad of great recordings he has given us both as a sideman and leader, it is his emphatic, soul-intuitive, work within the piano ...

Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part II: New York

Read "Culture Clubs: A History of the U.S. Jazz Clubs, Part II: New York" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Jazz didn't abandon jny: Chicago but its further development only began to take on a distinct personality in the 1960s. By the late 1920s, the next phase of the jazz scene had shifted from Chicago to New York though, initially, there was no red carpet rolled out. As jazz bands made their way to New York ...

Marc Copland: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Elementally essential, Marc Coplandlate career resurgence/reemergence/renaissance continues undaunted with NightFall, the pianist's first all solo full length since Alone (Pirouet, 2010).

In that span, some may have argued there's a huge head-space between Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett and some may have not, but either way Marc Copland commands the foreground.

Marc Copland: Nightfall

Read "Nightfall" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Between 2006 and 2012 pianist Marc  Copland produced a rich discography on the Pirouet Records label. With a cast of top level sidemen--Gary Peacock, Paul Motian, John Abercrombie, Drew Gress, Billy Hart...you get the idea--he shaped up his distinctive sound and and lifted his profile into the stars. The year 2012 saw Copland's last Pirouet release, ...
