Additional Information

Dafnis Prieto has graced our stage many times as both sideman and leader of his own Si Ó Si Quartet. This week, the powerhouse drummer returns with something completely different: the Proverb Trio, which combines his explosive drumming with Jason Lindner’s rhythmically intense electronic keyboards and Kokayi’s freestyle singing, rapping, and vocal percussion. The Proverb Trio’s self–titled debut album, issued via the drummer’s own Dafnison Music, is Prieto’s first recording since being awarded a MacArthur Fellowship (the so–called “genius grant”) in 2011. “Everything was improvised,” says Dafnis Prieto. “We did the entire album in six hours!” The result is not merely a set of sprawling jams, but con­cise structures and infectious grooves created collectively and on the fly, based on poetry that is as impro­vised as the instrumental parts.
