Dafnis Prieto Proverb Trio: The Magic Danzonete


 
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.
— DownBeat Editors' 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.
