WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Arranger-bandleader Arturo "Chico" O' Farrill, Sr. began introducing Afro-Cuban rhythms into jazz in the 1940's. The band bearing Chico's name "continues to showcase the most seamless blend of clavè rhythm and bebop harmony anywhere." (Time Out) The resident orchestra is directed by Chico's son, the Grammy Award winning pianist, composer and bandleader Arturo O'Farrill. Along with maintaining a busy performance schedule in settings ranging from solo to big band, Arturo is a jazz educator and leads the SUNY Purchase Latin Jazz Orchestra. Note: There is a $10.00 food or drink minimum per person.
