The Jazz Bakery at MI Concert Hall Presents:
Sunday, Nov. 18th
One Show – 8pm
Dafnis Prieto – drums
Kokayi – vocals, poetry
Jason Lindner – keyboards
“A phenomenal drummer… he is clearly pushing the Afro-Cuban jazz language into new territory.” –Variety
“The drummer Dafnis Prieto stands out for his energy, his creativity and, perhaps most of all, his borderless musical worldview.” –The New York Times
Since making its debut at the Whitney Museum in early 2009, the Proverb Trio has deepened its rapport and honed its sound in a series of New York club appearances and on a tour of the Western US. The entirely improvised interactions of Dafnis Prieto’s virtuosic and dynamic drumming, Kokayi’s rapid-fire rapping and soulful singing, and Jason Lindner’s harmonic sophistication and daring pianistic sound explorations yield exhilarating results. Because the group creates advanced compositional structures on the spot, the music is full of surprises and takes a different, explosive shape every night, but always with the Proverb Trio’s distinct personality and engaging spirit.
