His has been a life as deeply soulful and diverse as the breadth of his body of work and the diversity of players he has shared the stage and studio with. He served in the military overseas in Germany and when he completed his service he moved to the Pacific coast and worked with a variety of star players like Barney Kessel, Bud Shank, Paul Bley and Art Pepper. He left the West Coast for New York and caught up with Bill Evans and Miles Davis with whom he subbed in for Ron Carter. A period in Japan was spent in the study of Zen philosophy. The time with Jarrett and DeJohnette is a jewel of more contemporary jazz history. There is a healthy library of tracks recorded by the trio. Most recently he toured with his own trio including Marc Copland and Joey Baron. The creativity is as vibrant as the energy of an active mind. That describes Peacock perfectly.
