Dafnis Prieto Big Band | TRIBUTE

 
 

Inspired to make his biggest statement yet, Cuban-born drummer, composer, and bandleader Dafnis Prieto is thrilled to embark on a new musical adventure with his new recording, Tribute — his first big band album. Prieto will compose and rearrange works of his own, showcasing his talents as a trailblazing composer while honoring his musical heroes, offering an artistic statement that will transcend time and culture.

That’s the magic of Prieto: He has the ability to offer compositions and arrangements that are distinctly him, but he craftily leaves room for pedal-to-the-metal improvisation from a truly great band.
