Marc Copland, Gary Peacock and Joey Baron at Birdland

3 Mar

Last night at Birdland, bass player Gary Peacock, pianist Marc Copland and drummer Joey Baron performed some original songs as well as standards such as ‘Estate,’ ‘The Preacher’ or ‘Oleo.’ Overall the artistic synergy between the artists was special, and the club was absolutely packed. I was taken by most of the tunes the trio played but have to admit I lost their train of musical thought once or twice. Maybe I was not focused enough, or perhaps I could not always grasp what the musicians were experimenting with. But I enjoyed the fact that none of the musicians talked about the songs they performed or introduced themselves to the public. For Gary Peacock, performing is all about being “available.” The trio let their soulful tunes speak for themselves.
