O’s Notes: Victor Prieto plays jazz accordion in a very pleasurable format that defies pigeonholing into any one genre. On The Three Voices we find Latin, tango, popular and straight ahead jazz. Ten of the twelve selections are originals that could easily evolve into classics. Pianist Arturo O’Farrill appears on three selections notably “Games” and “Papa Pin”. Cristina Pato adds gaita (bagpipes) to the mix on “Muñeira For Cristina”. “The Vibraation” is the most eclectic of the selections but generally Prieto sticks to an embraceable format that is well executed.
