After great concerts with the ALJO featuring Ellis Marsalis and Steven Bernstein, the past couple of nights, we’re excited to return home to Birdland, in NYC, this evening. We’ll be celebrating – this afternoon our Artistic Director Arturo O’Farrill won a Grammy for Best Instrumental Composition, for “3 Revolutions” from our recent CD “Familia” featuring Chucho Valdes! Congratulations Arturo! Proud to be in the band and on the recording.

Come out and celebrate with us – 2 shows, at 9pm & 11pm. Hope to see you!

Looking forward to playing with Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, this evening, as we pay our Sunday night visit to Birdland in NYC. Tonight is our APAP showcase too, so all kinds of interesting music will be coming out of the back of the book! Shows at 9pm & 11pm – come on out and see what we’re up to.

Looking forward to playing with Eyal Vilner and his mighty Big Band, this evening. We’ll be taking the stage at Swing 46, on NYC’s Restaurant Row (W46th between 8th & 9th), from 8:45-11:45pm. Come on out and bring your dancing shoes!

Looking forward to playing with the great Mike Longo and his big band, the NY State of the Art Jazz Ensemble, at the NYC Baha’i Center Jazz Tuesdays, this evening. We’ll be performing Mike’s great arrangements along with some favourites from the Dizzy Gillespie book, and featuring vocalist Ira Hawkins. 2 shows – 8pm and 9:30pm – and only a $15 cover charge. The Baha’i Center is located on E11th Street between Broadway and University Place, a few blocks south of Union Square, in NYC. Come on out and enjoy a GREAT big band!
