Marilyn Crispell's ECM debut explores the unique sound-world of Annette Peacock's ballads. Peacock's songs have provided almost a leitmotif at ECM through the decades, but the composer herself feels that the renditions on Nothing Ever Was, Anyway are definitive, giving the project her seal of approval with the guest vocal on "Dreams". Crispell woodshedded in Woodstock with Peacock for months before the recording, selecting material and fine-tuning interpretive possibilities. Gary Peacock and Paul Motian, of course, helped to introduce Peacock's free ballad concept in the early 1960s when both were both were members of the Paul Bley Trio. Nothing Ever Was, Anyway is a specially-priced double album.
