Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra

Friday, May 11, 2018 - 8:00pm

One of the finest jazz groups working today, the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra thrives on crosscultural collaboration and cutting-edge improvisation. A regular Sunday-night gig at New York’s famed Birdland has helped hone the group’s tight ensemble runs, stirring dynamics and impeccable sense of swing. Multi-Grammy Award–winner, pianist and composer Arturo O’Farrill, the son of Cuban trumpeter Chico O’Farrill, has been hailed by The New York Times as “a magnificent player... sharp, splashy, and driving.”
