RELEASE DATE: Friday, April 5, 2019
Trombonist Peter Lin’s self-release New Age, Old Ways is a representation of his musical experiences with the TNT Quartet. The TNT Quartet, an acronym for ‘trombone n’ tenor’, features veteran saxophonist JD Allen (courtesy of HighNote Records) and his hard-swinging, energy-driven rhythm section: drummer Nic Cacioppo and bassist Ian Kenselaar. Drawing from inspiration of his personal life experiences, the repertoire serves as a spotlight on Peter Lin’s eight fresh and original compositions. Lin’s new album provides plenty of room for improvisational exploration in this chord-less setup. In addition to the music, there is an original comic book that accompanies the music illustrated by Kelly Lin.
