Born in Cuba, trained in Russia, chops earned in New York City, violinist Alfredo Triff now calls Miami home, though his trio has such a melange of styles, they could probably call anywhere home. Made up of Daniel Ponce on congas, Alex Berti on bass, and Triff on violin, the Alfredo Triff Trio has a laid-back sound that wouldn't have felt out of place in the West Village circa 1957.
Joining them tonight--and adding to that mid-century downtown aesthetic--are spoken word poets Adrian Castro and Rosie Inguanzo and singer Robert Povedo. The combination should be energetic and full of improvisation, and though Triff has its experimental side, the groove behind it is always well situated back on the island.
