In the realm of the piano trio the bar is set high, and creative bassist Gary Peacock has helped raise it in the groups of Bill Evans, Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett. However, the formative 1981 ECM release Voice from the Past: Paradigm finds Peacock working in a unique quartet setting with stellar accompaniment from Jan Garbarek (tenor & soprano saxophone), Tomasz Stanko (trumpet) and Jack DeJohnette (drums). The uncanny interplay between Peacock and DeJohnette on standouts like "Voice From the Past," "Moor" and "Ode for Tomten" wonderfully foreshadows the top flight work they would go on to do together in just a few years time in Keith Jarrett's trio.
