The GRAMMY Award-winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALJO), led by Arturo O’Farrill, brings together 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 the standard-bearer for creative interpretation of Latin jazz greats such as Tito Puente, Frank “Machito” Grillo, and Chico O’Farrill, as well as the driving force behind new commissions from Latin music’s most talented composers and arrangers. This year, Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro Latin Jazz Ensemble are nominated for two GRAMMY Awards for Best Latin Jazz Album and Best Instrumental Composition.
