Gary Peacock.
It is with deep sadness that we mourn the passing of the great Gary Peacock. I had the good fortune to have spent over 30 years playing some amazing music with him both separately and the Trio with Keith Jarrett. Gary had a great sound, feel and highly creative imagination. It was Garys album on ECM, Tales of Another that brought us together, after that we decided to stay playing together, and the rest is history. I have a lot of love and gratitude for what he has contributed to the music we call Jazz. Lydia and I send our deepest love to the Peacock family you are in our hearts always.

I'm sorry to hear this.  I caught Keith Jarrett's Standards Trio at what I think was their penultimate concert before they disbanded.  It was the only time I saw Gary Peacock perform.  He was represented well in the mix and I gained a greater appreciation for how much he added to the group, as he did to so many groups.

Thank you for the music, Mr. Peacock, and rest in peace.

Now there are reports that this is fake news. . . just as it was in May when it was reported to he had died.

Still haven't seen a confirmation either way. FB folks are telling both sides of the story.

What's the source for the report being false or a hoax, which Annette Peacock is tweeting as well?  Hopefully not mediamass.net.  (And hopefully he's still with us--seems odd that Jack DeJohnette would be taken in, though.)

EDIT:  I don't see any tweet about Gary Peacock on DeJohnette's recent Twitter feed--so if it was posted there originally, he's deleted it.

My source were several friends reporting they read that it was a hoax. I think there's a good chance it is a hoax (again) as there is still no real official news.

Correct; what I posted above (from DeJohnette's FB page) is no longer there.  Very odd.  If it is a hoax, I cannot imagine the motivation of the hoaxers.

Here's a FB post from 6 hours ago by Annette:

"Now it appears the reports on Gary's death are a hoax, which indeed would be good news!"

I'm more inclined to believe the report of a hoax is, in fact, the real hoax.  The article you linked is published by Mediamass, a parody news site. The second clue? The author of the piece is Jessica Simpson?!?

That may well be, but in either case let's celebrate all the great music he's been involved in thru the years...and I've started a thread to do just that:

I see this stating it’s a hoax. 
https://en.mediamass.net/people/gary-peacock/deathhoax.html

 

That’s a nonsense site that I saw posted twice(!) on the reddit jazz sub, less than an hour after I first saw Jack D’s FB page link posted here.

https://en.mediamass.net/people/herbie-hancock/deathhoax.html

https://en.mediamass.net/people/bill-clinton/deathhoax.html

https://en.mediamass.net/people/taylor-swift/deathhoax.html

Doesn’t work for quite every name I’ve tried, but when you change the name in the URL, the website builds the page from scratch from that, including the phony magazine cover.

That hoax is in very bad taste. I have never heard of anything like it, and I don't know what anyone could gain from it.
