“If there is such a thing as a first family of Afro-Cuban jazz, the O’Farrill clan has a right to claim that distinction.” — The New York Times

Hot Latin rhythms, a blistering horn section, and maestro Arturo O’Farrill transport music lovers to a Caribbean beach or a steamy night in Spanish Harlem. An accomplished pianist, Mr. O’Farrill initially left his mark playing with Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Belafonte, and Wynton Marsalis. The award-winning composer, musician, and educator founded the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra in 2002 to celebrate Latin jazz through international tours and the commissioning of new works. Their hard work was rewarded with the 2009 Grammy for best Latin Jazz Album, appropriately named for this night’s performance, Song for Chico.
