One of them is Somewhere, a sublime 2009 live set by the long-running standards trio of Peacock, pianist Keith Jarrett, and Woodstock drummer Jack DeJohnette. Here’s a version of the Bernstein/Sondheim classic “Tonight” from the album:
The other disc is Azure, a brilliant duo session by Peacock and another Woodstock jazzer, pianist Marilyn Crispell. While the trio recording is expectedly brilliant, given the players, what a pair Peacock and Crispell make on the other release. Their interplay across the hour-long program is seamless, constantly looping and morphing in on itself like a Mobius strip to reemerge with ever-surprising interplay.
