Gary Peacock's musical career has indeed spanned many musical styles and decades. Born in Idaho, Peacock became serious about music when he was 13, and played drums and piano before recognizing the acoustic bass as his true instrument. Since 1957, he has played and recorded with both "mainstream" and "avant-garde" jazz luminaries, including Art Pepper, Dexter Gordon, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Albert Ayler, Paul Bley, Jimmy Giuffre, Jan Garbarek, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Keith Jarrett, and Herbie Hancock. He has also ventured into world music, recording with both guitarist Laurendo Almeida and sitarist Ravi Shankar.
Starting with Down Beat's "New Star" Award in 1963, Peacock has received much critical recognition over the years. More recently, his Standards Trio recordings with Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette have garnered several Grammy nominations and awards in France, Japan, and Germany.
A teacher as well as a composer and performer, Peacock developed the Music Theory and Harmony Program at Cornish College in Seattle. He currently offers workshops and master classes worldwide, including a recent project at the Royal Academy of Music in London.
