Genius is not about perfection: It’s about invention. Drummer Dafnis Prieto’s new, globally inspired trio date is a cultural prophecy, an oracle that presents a broad, awe-inspiring vision of the jazz future.
Down Beat Editor’s pick July 2012.

This audaciously fresh improvisational collaboration among drummer Prieto, keyboardist Jason Lindner and vocalist/poet Kokayi braids together funk, ambient, jazz, hip-hop, classical, rock, etc, into an exhilarating collection of tunes determined to lift the spirit. Alibi Magazine

It has long been said that “there’s nothing new under the sun,” but this record counters that particular proverb’s proclamation. Drummer/composer Dafnis Prieto has birthed an album unlike anything else in his own discography-or anywhere else, for that matter. The self-titled debut from Prieto’s Proverb Trio is a triumphantly trip album that’s built around the notion of jazz as a collectively improvised modern melting pot. All About Jazz
