Quotes & Highlights
“The ALJO is filling a great void on the New York cultural scene, performing the classics of the Afro-Latin jazz tradition, commissioning new works and playing dances. This band is firmly connected with the essence of Latin jazz. They have great soloists and first-class ensemble playing.” —Wynton Marsalis
The Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra explores the concept of groove (timba) as expressed throughout Latin America, including Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Argentina and even the rare and exotic Borscht Belt in the Catskills. The program will feature premieres and new works from composers Fernando Otero, Michael Mossman, Emillio Solla, Arturo O’Farrill, Paul Shapiro, Michael Webster and others.
