“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

“Dedicated to both preserving the legacy of the elder O’Farrill and documenting the younger musician’s efforts to move the music forward.” NPR

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).
