I just received the news that bassist Gary Peacock has died. Intense and creatively original, his playing in the new music of the early 60’s was inspiring. Here’s a track with Albert Ayler and Sunny Murray that made a big impression on me.https://t.co/NEngfmIRt1

Extremely saddened to hear of the passing of bass great Gary Peacock. He was one of the reasons I decided to pick up the instrument in the first place. His ear for creative and robust melody inspire me to practice and cultivate a rich sensibility everyday. Rest in Peace… pic.twitter.com/yR6q0lvqt8

RIP Gary Peacock. When I was working on my essay on Nardis, “Broken Time” (https://t.co/G0iAx8vOKi), I asked Ralph Towner, who played the tune dozens of times, what his own favorite version was. It was this with Gary, on a rare, out of print album. Enjoy. https://t.co/Nst7xKkH6v
