Sad to hear of the death of bass player Gary Peacock. I was fortunate enough to see him live in the Standards Trio with Keith Jarrett and Jack DeJohnette. Giving this a spin this evening. pic.twitter.com/Wasrw5oUCV

Can anyone confirm Gary Peacock’s status? I’m very much hoping he’s still on the terrestrial plane. It looks like @DeJohnetteMusic took down a tweet about GP’s death, and now there’s word it’s a “celebrity hoax.” Trying to process how I feel about GP as a celeb…#Jazz #Bass

Jack DeJohnette’s social media postings regarding Gary Peacock’s death, which is where I heard of it, have been taken down. If it turns out GP is still amongst us, then the appropriate response is FUCK YEAH!
