Default Dafnis Prieto

Dafnis Prieto blows my mind. I've seen this guy numerous times and he absolutely rips. I've mostly seen him in Michel Camilo's trio but I just recently saw him with his own sextet in support of his new album. His writing is absolutely crazy and the instrumentation of his bands is very unique. Everyone should check this guy out.

I'll leave you with a quote from Dafnis' vic firth artist spotlight.

"This is Dafnis Prieto, I am gonnaí tell you something. Sticks are to make music. You have to make music on the drums, ok. Thatís what weíre here for. Make it groovy, make it swingy, and music; itís all about the music."

I watched that Vic Firth interview after reading his interview in MD... I like his playing a lot. I like what he has to say about composition. He's really into playing his role, and I think its always good to hear from people who approach the drums this way.

I just read his feature article in MD and then checked out a few videos of him. This guy is very impressive!

Ditto......... the MD interview was interesting, and he seems to have a really interesting way of looking at his playing. Quite a chop monster, too ,though I didn't find him terribly original..maybe its because I was watching some of his practice vids.

I suppose.. Michel Camillo's gig must be awesome though..

EDIT - ok, i've got this all wrong.. I'm thinking Dietch and am writing about Prieto............ apologies to Dafnis and to HST drums

I picked up an album of his sextet after reading the MD feature, but haven't had the chance to listen to it yet. He's quite the player, though. Some really great ideas in the music, and chops for days.

LOL. It is a nice addition to any kit. I wonder if I could find a way to rig a hot plate under a frying pan on my kit... it would serve two purposes.

I started listening to the CD I picked up, Absolute Quintet. Definitely some unique instrumentation, I think I like it so far.

Haven't been able to check out the new MD but I'm picking up a copy today or tomorrow. He makes noises that I have never heard a drumset make before!!

That is an awesome solo.... I really like his playing. It should also be noted for those of us that have been on some of the other threads that he obviously doesn't change his heads every month or whatever... I get a kick out of the size of the wear spots on his toms. He's got some serious accuracy.

playing at break neck speed as he often does....how the hell is he that accurate? Really, its insane, especially in free flowing music like that, off hits are to be expected when your bringing so much feeling! But exactly right, like a bullet hole!
