Program

Proclaimed by the New York Times as the “leader of the ‘first family of Afro-Cuban jazz,’” pianist, composer, and educator Arturo O’Farrill began his professional career with the Carla Bley Band and continued as a solo performer with a wide spectrum of artists, including Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Bowie, Wynton Marsalis, and Harry Belafonte. Special guest Veronica Smith recorded her first album, Veronica’s House of Jazz, when she was only nine years old. On This Bitter Earth, her most recent album, Swift covers multiple genres, including jazz, American musicals, vintage R&B, and contemporary rock.
