Gary Peacock (May 12, 1935 – September 4, 2020) was an American jazz double bassist.He recorded a dozen albums under his own name, and also performed and recorded with major jazz figures such as saxophonist Albert Ayler, and pianists Bill Evans, Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett (with whom he recorded over twenty albums as part of Jarrett’s “Standards Trio”).
The trio existed for over thirty years, and featured drummer Jack DeJohnette, who also recorded with Peacock on various other projects as well.
DeJohnette once stated that he admired Peacock's "sound, choice of notes, and, above all, the buoyancy of his playing." Marilyn Crispell called Peacock a "sensitive musician with a great harmonic sense."
