Enric Peidro

A self taught musician,Peidro began playing tenor at the age of fourteen.A couple of years later he was playing on several blues and rhythm and blues bands. His interest in Jazz developed quickly and since then,Peidro has remained loyal to his musical heros: the big-toned tenors in Jazz,like Ben Webster,Don Byas or Gene Ammons and specially the Texas tenor school of Jacquet,Cobb,Tate,Johnson..etc Although his sound and phrasing are deeply rooted in the swing-era,his approach is so natural and genuine that he has achieved popularity as a real “keeper of the flame” among the classic jazz lovers all over Spain. Often reviewed as an “outsider”,a “rara avis” or “an stylist swinmming agains the current” by jazz critics who appreciate his honest,unpretentious approach and invariably point out the richness of his tenor sound.

Peidro, always a faithful follower of the big-toned tenors in jazz, demostrates at every gig that he knows fairly well how to produce a beutiful tone on the tenor sax delivered together with his natural ability to swing hard, and still keep sounding relaxed. (C.B news, dec 2009)

Peidro is all breath and heat, a beautiful sound, with an expansive character dominated by it’s swingin’ sound
