Grammy Award Winning Pianist/Composer/Educator - Arturo O'Farrill

Founder and Artistic Director of the nonprofit Afro Latin Jazz Alliance, and Grammy award winner, Arturo O'Farrill, can appropriately be dubbed "the apple that did not fall far from the tree."  He is the son of the late great Cuban composer and arranger, Chico O'Farrill.  Arturo has worked with a wide range of jazz greats including:  Dizzy Gillespie, Steve Turre, Freddy Cole, The Fort Apache Band, Lester Bowie, and Wynton Marsalis to name a few,

With 10 CD's already under his belt, including his recent Grammy winner, "Offense of the Drum", Arturo has produced yet another incredible work that just may garner him another Grammy nomination. "Cuba:  The Conversation Continues", Arturo's newest release, is a heart pounding, chaotic, rhythmic blend of pure Afro-Cuban jazz bliss, that goes well beyond just being about music.  It is also about "repairing the rupture between the US and Cuba."  He pushes it to the limit on this one ya'll!
