Yasser "Yassz" Tejeda - Dominican Fusion Guitar




Thanks to reader Adam for turning me on to Yassz Tejeda! Really cool world beat jazz fusion stuff here folks. The above vid tune called "coco de agua" (Coconut Grove), is from 2007. Yasser has newer Youtube clips, including some '09 performances at Berklee, but I'm really into his '07 clips with this rhythm section. At www.youtube.com/user/Yassz look for his videos titled "Machacando, Mezclansa and 3 Palo to'" for this same session and musician line-up.

Listening to all the tunes reveals an eclectic mix of Afro-Dominican Jazz, Blues, Straight ahead Fusion and more. This bass player is a killer, and the drummer an absolute monster! According to our friend Adam, Yassz has been a student of Dave Fiuczynski of the legendary Screaming Headless Torsos.
