Airs Tuesday, March 19 at 9 p.m. Like his countryman Pedrito Martinez, drummer Dafnis Prieto came over from Cuba around the turn of the century — promptly placing every rhythm section in New York City on notice. His next-level understanding of the clave, combined with his seeming willingness to try anything that grooves, led to his nomination as a MacArthur Fellow last year. That cast of mind powering a sextet with horns will prove volatile, as it did on his 2008 album Taking The Soul For A Walk. On stage, it's liable to cause bug-eyed amazement if onlookers aren't careful. His band features Peter Apfelbaum on saxophone, Felipe Lamoglia on saxophone, Ralph Alessi on trumpet, Manuel Valera on piano, and Yunior Terry on bass.

Airs Friday, March 1 at 8 p.m. Twang Darkly returns to Red River Radio for a live performance of their unique blend of original instrumental music that has been described as "Cinematic Appalachian jazz rock fetched from the future on a beer-fueled time machine fabricated from gourds and guitar strings." Twang Darkly features Michael Futreal on Appalachian dulcimer, banjo, gourdtar, guitar, harmonica, flute, and suchlike; Troy Messina drum; and Joel Boultinghouse on the big ol' string bass and electric guitars.
