Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra

(2017/2018 Performing Arts)

Thu, May 17
8:00 PM
Available on the Jazz series

“A masterful and adventurous big band that both champions the great tradition of Latin jazz and questions its own presumed stylistic borderlines.” – Josef Woodard, SB News-Press

Pianist and composer Arturo O’ Farrill is the multi-Grammy Award-winning founder of the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, “one of the best jazz orchestras in existence” (The New Yorker). The son of jazz legend Chico O’Farrill, Arturo O’Farrill brings his sensibility as Afro-Cuban jazz royalty to weekly performances at New York’s famed jazz club Birdland. Don’t miss this cross-cultural, cutting-edge, 18-piece powerhouse outfit on tour, delivering their unique fusion of Afro-Caribbean rhythms and jazz improvisation “spiced with hints of avant-garde” (The New York Times).
