Arturo O’ Farrill


Arturo O’Farrill is a Jazz Café favorite, who recently played the Jazz Café earlier this Fall with his blistering trio and will lead this iteration of the Latin Jazz All Stars with his Afro-Cuban flavored playing which is second to none in the idiom. Grammy Award nominated, Conga-playing Chembo Corniel divides his performance time between his two musical loves: Latin jazz and “old-fashioned salsa that swings.”

Line up-
Nestor Torres – Flute
Arturo O’Farrill – Piano
Chembo Corniel – Conga Drums
Steve Berrios – Drums

Tickets: $30 Advance $40 Door – Available at The Music Hall Box Office or Ticketmaster.
