Album Review

Dafnis Prieto's third outing as a leader focuses exclusively on his complex, challenging originals, not exactly what one expects from a date led by most jazz drummers. Then again, Prieto's innovative blend of his Cuban heritage with post-bop make for compelling music, as interpreted by a group that includes multi-reed players Peter Apfelbaum and Yosvany Terry, pianist Manuel Valera, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, and bassist Yunior Terry, all but one fine leaders in their own right. The tension never lets up in his dramatic "Taking the Soul for a Walk," with Apfelbaum's melodica out front over the furious rhythm section. "Until the Last Minute" is a more traditional Latin jazz number, with lush harmonies and a fine solo by Valera. "Two Excuses" is a breezy affair with a humorous air, while the upbeat, enchanting "Prelude Para Rosa" adds Itai Kriss on flute.

Customer Reviews

Dafnis Prieto Taking the soul for a walk

Wow Every drummer should listen to this Great!!!

Dafnis is Incredible!!!

I saw this band play material off this album at the Jazz Standard in NYC 6-22-08 Absolutely mind blowing. His facility on the drumset and as a composer are well beyond his years. Check him out with Michel Camilo trio also. His drumming is superb.

Superb compositions

Superb compositions. Found this by way of Peter Apfelbaum's ensemble, and I'd put the two artists in the same ball park (tho I'd be hard-pressed to give the genre a name). Strong, tight band. Special kudos to the pianist; occasionally, "Taking the Soul for a Walk" plays like his album. I often play this and "It is Written" back to back.
