391: Gary Peacock on Zen, self, and the muse

391: Gary Peacock on Zen, self, and the muse

When you’re playing, do you think about what you want to say, or what the music wants of you? Do you remember the process you went through learning how to speak? What happens when you lose half your fingers the day of a big concert? We answer these questions and much more on this episode featuring Gary Peacock. Gary Peacock has spent the past 60+ years collaborating with artists like Keith Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette, Miles Davis, Bill Evans, and Tony Williams. He just released his latest trio album Tangents.  This is the second trio release with Marc Copland and Joey Baron and draws on years of shared playing in diverse contexts.
