Victor Prieto Trio Residency, New York - USA
Contributed by Holda Paoletti-Kampl

On February 17th, 9pm, the Victor Prieto Trio, with vocalist Maria Cangiano, appear in concert at Night and Day, Park Slope, Brooklyn. Victor tells us: “My series of shows at Night and Day resumes in February until June, always the 3rd Saturday of each month”.

The Victor Prieto Trio includes Carlo deRosa - bass and Vince Cherico - drums.

The magazine ‘All About Jazz’ says "Spanish-born jazz accordionist Victor Prieto is the most exciting such player to come on the scene since Eddie Monteiro. Melding Argentine and Brazilian influences with a bop sensibility, Prieto gives the lie to all of the nasty things that have been said over the years about the much-maligned squeezebox."
