Artist Biographies:

"Marc Copland (born May 27, 1948, as Marc Cohen) is an American jazz pianist and composer.

Copland became part of the jazz scene in Philadelphia in the early 1960s as a saxophonist, and later moved to New York City, where he experimented with electric alto saxophone. In the early 1970s, while pursuing his own harmonic concept, he grew dissatisfied with what he felt were inherent limitations in the saxophone and moved to the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area, where he remained for a decade to retrain as a jazz pianist. He returned to New York in the mid-1980s."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Pianist Marc Copland treats the compositions of bassist Gary Peacock with a respectful intimacy on this stark solo album. The two artists, who first met in Seattle back in 1983, share a quiet but sturdy iconoclasm. Copland also shares many of the virtues common to the three other pianists with whom Peacock has had especially noteworthy associations-Bill Evans, Paul Bley, and Keith Jarrett-but is arguably more abstract and restrained, with a greater generosity of spirit. Having recorded half of these eight songs less than five years ago in the Peacock Trio with drummer Joey Baron, for the ECM album Now This, Copland still apparently felt the need to personalize the tribute with some minor refinements on Gary.

Peacock has a knack for concocting haunting refrains, a quality that meshes well with Copland's sublime use of resonance. The pianist's impeccable intonation and use of the foot pedals enable him to fade and bleed the notes and chords of those refrains, often interspersed with delicate surges seasoned with modal and harmonic changes. On "Gaia," his asides are fascinating and ephemeral, like sonic footnotes whispered into the margins. "Requiem" sets a tableau that is as stark and forlorn as a sub-zero snowfall. "Empty Carousel" injects a whiff of blues into its slow, circular churn, and "Random Mist" is chamber-esque."-Britt Robson, Jazz Times
