Pairing two Jazz & music legends, this album, Gary Peacock & Bill Frisell: Just So Happens, presents the fascinating combination of celebrated bassist Gary Peacock with eclectic guitar guru Bill Frisell. Together, the duo construct original compositions, play a poignant, affecting version of "Good Morning Heartache," and surprise the listener with their fresh interpretations of two traditional American tunes, "Home on the Range" and " Red River Valley." Just So Happens also features Peacock playing bowed bass for the first time on a recording since his work with Albert Ayler in the 1960's.

 

"4 Stars…Peacock turns in a masterful, always musical performance, and…

his warm, woody tone [is recorded] with exceptional presence and depth.”

- Down Beat Magazine

 

 

One the most melodically inclined bassist in Jazz, Gary Peacock has become a renowned figure in Jazz by performing his daring, warm yet big, fluid yet pensive, bass sounds alongside renowned musicians such as Bill Evans, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, and Keith Jarrett. His collaborator for this musical expedition is the famed guitarist Bill Frisell. Whether performing classic Jazz standards with Elvis Costello or ambient musings & abstractions alongside John Zorn, Bill Frisell’s style is uncontainable. His awesome technique and ability to control the timbres and harmonics of his instrument creates a astonishingly original sound that transcends the constraints of style, making the resonances from his guitar recognizable whether he is playing Jazz, Folk, World or Rock music.

 

"a riveting duet…for its wealth of uncanny empathy, liberal doses of chance-taking, and raw-boned musicality, Just So Happens is one of the finest jazz albums of the year."                                                                                                     - Jazziz

 

For this Postcards album, Gary Peacock & Bill Frisell: Just So Happens (also available on CD), Bill Frisell, who plays both acoustic & electric guitar on the recording, and Bass giant Gary Peacock create an imaginative album that while simultaneously respecting and reflecting the influence of Jazz, also constructs a new music that pushes past its traditional boundaries. In short, the recording is a magical collaboration between two astounding artists.
