Gary Peacock, Marc Copland, & Joey Baron
A piano trio that thrives on the wisdom of agility, this band moves from rumination to rumble as the evening unfolds. The idea isn't to keep audience off balance, it's to offer a range of hues. Copland is a pianist who values mood as much as rhythm, and he's often willing to let the music float a bit. That's why his cohorts are aptly chosen: Both Baron's feathery snare rolls and Peacock's rich plunks are expert at observing the value of pure sound.
