Dafnis Prieto Big Band – “Out of the Bone” (Video)

The Dafnis Prieto Big Band’s new album, Back to the Sunset, is quite the grand accomplishment. Prieto’s largest ensemble yet is filled with movement after movement of his signature rhythms and vibes sure to please. The album dropped just last month but there’s still so much more to uncover, like in the new video for “Out of the Bone” featuring the group putting this all together in the studio. Check it out after the jump.
