The brassy sounds of the trumpet used to cut across the cold Tijuana nights — that’s according to Tijuana Moods, a documentary about Jazz and Urbanism in Tijuana, from the 50s through the 70s. Created in part by San Diego architect Rene Peralta, the story is carried through by interviews with old-time scenesters whose charm and humor makes the historical overview exciting and inherently hip.
I’m talking with Peralta next week. I’ll know more then. For now, check out the short YouTube promo video above.
