Peter Meyer alternative progressive jazz Peter Meyer – Other Animal

Peter Meyer alternative progressive jazz Peter Meyer – OTHER ANIMAL:  The best way to introduce this fine act to you (& your ears) is to let you watch their fine alternative & progressive jazz via the (one) video they have posted as “Other Animal” (which features Peter Meyer – guitar; Bernhard Meyer – bass; Wanja Slavin – saxophone and  Jim Black – drums)…

…the song they are playing is titled “Stroy”… as with all dozen songs on the album, this is original work, and you can see/hear that they play with superb energy levels together. 

The samples won’t be available for a while, as the album doesn’t release until Feburary, 2018 (I will come back and add any samples as they become avaialble on Amazon, etc.)… in the meantime, they do have an ALBUM TRAILER up on Sound Cloud that will give you a taste.

I can tell you right now that if you love jazz that isn’t “stuck in the ruts”, you’re going to totally enjoy the full-bodied presence they project on songs like “Downbear”… it’s played at very slow tempo, but will reach right down through your ears to your heart (& soul, I might add)… a VERY solid piece of music.

The drum intro on the opener, “Drown Dreams”, sets a nice upbeat pace for the 3:43 tune, and displays their joy of playing solid jazz together… I listen to this one on my iPhone player all the time now…

Of the twelve tunes offered up, I found “Qubits” got my vote for personal favorite… again, their music is definitely “different”… highly original, with high-energy pacing that will reach deep down inside of you.  I give the group a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this fine effort.  Get more information on the Meyermusic page for the album.         Rotcod Zzaj
