Proverb Trio

Dafnis Prieto - drums

Jason Linder - keyboards

Kokayi - voice

Cuban drum phenom, Dafnis Prieto, formed Proverb Trio a few years ago and they have been touring the world ever since.  Their innnoative style consists of pure, exciting and unpredictable improvisation every time they take the stage.  Jason Linder, one of the top young jazz keyboard players, a band leader in his own right, supplies various keyboard/electronic sounds and an occasional solo, while Dafins concocks the most incredible thythmic patterns and solos and Kokayi jumps in rapping, reciting poetry, singing and/or making various vocal sounds, developing a "song" on the spot.

Proverb Trio opened Saturday's music at noon and I got a little carried away with my camera - hence part 2 of my San José Summer Fest report is all them.  This is the third or fourth time I have seen this group and they always blow me away.

Dafnis playing solo claves and vocalizing rhythmic patterns on top.  Mind blowing and completely original.
