Arturo O'Farrill Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra
Cornel West Concerto
The Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra of pianist Arturo O’Farrill, a twotime Grammy winner, reaches beyond his trumpeter father Chico O’Farrill’s Afro-Cuban jazz to embrace many Latin American music traditions. This Bing program features the Cornel West Concerto—which sets text by virtuosic speaker, scholar, and activist Dr. Cornel West to Afro-Latin jazz orchestration.
