Meet & Greet with Arturo O'Farrill*

Pfleeger Concert Hall

The multi Grammy Award-winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALJO), led by pianist, composer, and Artistic Director Arturo O’Farrill, blends the drama of big band jazz, the culture of Latin music, and the virtuosity of eighteen of the world’s most accomplished solo musicians. Eighteen years of critically acclaimed performances internationally have firmly established the ALJO as a standard-bearer. Their innovative repertoire pushes the genre forward, reflecting Arturo’s dual sensibilities of contemporary, improvisational jazz, honed by his work with the likes of Carla Bley, Lester Bowie and Dizzy Gillespie, with the Latin Jazz traditions pioneered by his father, the legendary Chico O’Farrill.
