    I am doing some research that may lead to a piece of journalism if I can get interview access and enough other material. Gary Peacock lived in Japan from 1968-72 and did some recordings there in the latter 2 years. Below is a list of those that I know of; can any of you guys add to it ?

    Also if anyone has any info or possible sources of info on his life and career from that time, or can put me in touch with the man himself, I would greatly appreciate it. In particular I would like to find out if he was playing live at all and any other Japanese musicians he may have played with.

    Gary Peacock - Eastward (CBS-Sony)
    Gary Peacock - Voices (CBS-Sony)
    Mal Waldron and Gary Peacock - First Encounter (Victor)
    Hozan Yamamoto - Silver World (Philips)
    Masahiko Sato Trio - Samadhi - Mashiko Meets Gary (Teichiku/Express)

    Thanks ! That's great info. I will have to track down all of these recordings.

    I found out about on one more as well, Helen Merrill/Sposin, I believe it was on Victor originally but is more common in a Storyville DK reissue.
