Dafnis Prieto Sextet

Angel City Jazz Festival 2013

Featuring Dafnis Prieto Sextet
“Emotionally charged and stylistically diverse, carried along not just by rhythm, but through lovely harmonized passages, horn fanfares, and powerfully conjured moods.”
—The Wall Street Journal 

Co-presented with The Jazz Bakery as part of Angel City Jazz Festival

Cuban-born composer and drum virtuoso Dafnis Prieto performs movements of his award-winning Chamber Music America commission The Emotion Series: Taking the Soul for a Walk, with his adventurous sextet: Peter Apfelbaum, saxophones and  flute; Felipe Lamoglia, saxophones; Ralph Alessi, trumpet; Manuel Valera, piano; and Johannes Weidenmueller, bass. Prieto has served on the Music Faculty at NYU since 2005, toured Europe with the groundbreaking group Columna B and was the recipient of a 2011 MacArthur “genius grant.” He received a Latin Grammy Nomination for “Best New Artist” in 2007. This concert is a co-production with The Jazz Bakery, and is made possible in part by a new grant from Chamber Music America.
