Released by Dafnison Music, 2009
All compositons by Dafnis Prieto
Published Dafnison Music (BMI)

“Love it when a working band gets captured on a hot night. Jazz boasts several superb live discs, and the Cuban drummer’s decision to document his foursome’s controlled delirium was a wise move that adds another title to the list. Prieto has made some exciting albums previously, but those who catch him on a regular basis know that the bandstand is where the real action is…  He’s expert at calibrating his incredible chops to suit the tune at hand. Turn up the volume on Si O Si’s work and discover what happens when judiciousness and exhilaration make a deep connection.”
**** 4 stars  – Jim Macnie, Downbeat

“… some of the most interesting and complex compositions and arrangements I’ve heard in quite some time.  This music is deep, rich and complex and to hear such a world class quartet navigating this music live is an experience not to be forgotten.
– Damian Erskine, Bass Musician Magazine

“This is truly extraordinary jazz music. The rhythmic and melodic motifs in the compositions are so pronounced, and the musicianship so lissome, no matter the tempo, the impact of these live recordings from early in 2009 is deceptively strong. Put this on ‘Best of 2009’ list now!”
– Doug Collette, Glidemagazine.com
