Additional Information

The triple threat drummer, composer, bandleader and 2011 MacArthur Fellow Dafnis Prieto has graced our stage previously with his Si Ó Si Quintet and the daringly experimental Proverb Trio (with keyboards ace Jason Lindner and vocalist Kokayi). This special Jazz Standard engagement will feature saxophonist Felipe Lamoglia and trumpeter Ralph Alessi, both of whom performed on Prieto’s first sextet recording, Taking The Soul For A Walk, in 2008. “Backed by a crack group of players especially suited to bring the composer's vision to fruition, Prieto presents a cavalcade of original compositions that combine Afro Cuban rhythms with modern jazz textures into a highly original and combustive blend…Music this dense and colorful is nearly impossible to describe.” (Brad Walseth, JazzChicago.net)
