Arturo O’Farrill is the keeper of the flame – a brilliant pianist, composer, and bandleader whose command of the Latin jazz language is unparalleled; his father Chico was one of the great Latin jazz composers, working with Count Basie and Stan Kenton as well as Machito.

At this special concert, part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, he plays with his own talented sons, trumpeter Adam O’Farrill and drummer Zack O’Farrill. Inspirational pianist Omar Sosa and violinist Yilian Cañizares create musical fireworks in a brand new project – Sosa retaining the spiritual essence of his Cuban roots, whilst Cañizares brings an extrovert lyricism to her music.

Quincy Jones has championed and mentored the extraordinary young pianist Alfredo Rodriguez – a charismatic and spectacular live performer, he returns to the UK following his appearance at last year’s BBC Proms.
