Description: With a deep knowledge of Afro-Latin rhythm and percussion, Grammy-winning pianist Arturo O'Farrill and his big band elevate Latin jazz standards to new heights. Tonight honors the Palladium's Big 3, featuring the mambos of Tito Puente, Machito, and Tito Rodriguez, with some salsa dura surprises thrown in for good measure. The ensemble, joined by special guest timbalero Tito Rodriguez, Jr. and vocalist Sammy Gonzalez, Jr., makes even the most dizzyingly complex pieces feel effortless and joyful, and the best dance tunes feel wonderfully artful.
