Returning to Symphony Space with ALJA's first Performance Series presentation of 2018, this show brings together three cities that have been focal points in the evolution of the music known as Jazz: New Orleans, Havana and New York. Hosted by multi-GRAMMY winners Arturo O'Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, the show features the great New Orleans pianist, NEA Jazz Master Ellis Marsalis, patriarch of New Orlean's great musical family. At the same time it is also a meeting of two of New York City's most creative, accomplished and mischievous composers and arrangers --O'Farrill and slide-trumpet virtuoso Steven Bernstein, along with two of the city's most exciting and innovative large ensembles, the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra and the Hot 9's. The Cuba & New Orleans spirit is filtered and seasoned by the New York style of experimentation both O'Farrill & Bernstein bring to the table. Expect "Upside Down and Turned Around" takes and various traditional themes and non-traditional excursions.
Friday and Saturday, January 26th & 27th • 8:00 pm
