2023 Grammy® Award-winner!
Six-time Grammy® Award-winner Arturo O’Farrill and his Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra blend big band jazz, Latin rhythms and the virtuosity of a large group of the world’s most accomplished solo musicians. The son of the late, great Chico O’Farrill, Arturo celebrates his father in a program of Philadelphia premieres, setting Chico’s iconic Afro-Cuban Jazz Suite alongside Arturo’s Afro Latin Jazz Suite. Don’t miss this Latin jazz visionary and “one of the best jazz orchestras in existence.” (The New Yorker)
