Powerful patient jazz craftsmanship Peter Tijerina – Just Yesterday

Powerful patient jazz craftsmanship Peter Tijerina – JUST YESTERDAY:  Our friends at “Outside In Music” have been releasing a lot of red-hot debut CD’s lately… the powerful patient jazz craftsmanship that trombonist Peter put together for his album is right at the top of those releases, to be sure… to get a close-up look at his playing style, be sure to check out this video of “It’s One Or The Other” performed live at the release party…

You’ll find a LOT more live performances, instructional videos and much more when you SUBSCRIBE to Peter’s YouTube channel, too… I signed up right away.

In addition to Peter’s high-energy trombone, you’ll also hear Corey Kendrick on piano; Aneesa Strings doing bass; Nicholas Bracewell’s drums; Michael Dease on trombone and Diego Rivera playing tenor saxophone… Aneesa’s bass intro on “Deviation” is just superb… I have NO doubt that jazz DJ’s will be adding this tantalizing tune in for constant rotations!

There’s lots of great energy on “Lovely“… it wasn’t quite what I expected from the title, but it’s full of movement and passion that will astound your ears… this tune is (absolutely) a “keeper“, and will be getting lots of “replay” action on my player.

I can guarantee you that you haven’t heard a more upbeat version of the opening salvo, “It Could Happen To You“… a great tune to open the album with; in fact, it was this song that made me choose the album for placement on my iPhone player (and that only happens with the very BEST jazz)!

My choice for personal favorite of the ten tunes offered up was an easy one… the title track, “Just Yesterday“, features both Peter and Michael on trombone, and is the most laid-back and mellow trombone-led jazz tune I’ve listened to (yet) in 2021.

I give Peter and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this daring debut release.  Get more information on Peter’s website.                                           Rotcod Zzaj
