"A Closer View"


Gary Peacock joins guitarist Ralph Towner for a performance in 1997. The duo collaborated on Peacock's mid-1990s LP "A Closer View."

Double bassist Gary Peacock first emerged on the West Coast jazz scene of the early 1960s with musicians including Art Pepper, Bud Shank, Barney Kessel, and Paul Bley.

Relocating to New York where he continued to work with Bley, in addition Gary played in the trio's of Bill Evans and Albert Ayler and briefly with Miles Davis.

After taking a break from music to study Zen philosophy in Japan during the late '60s he returned to the U.S. in 1972 and would teach music theory from 1976 to 1983 at the Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle.

Gary Peacock became a member of Keith Jarrett's "Standards Trio" in 1983 also featuring drummer Jack DeJohnette.

The group produced the memorable record releases "Standards Vol. 1" and "Standards Vol. 2."
