UP! For on–stage excitement and musical precision, this thirteen–strong New York collective of musicians and vocalists is without peer. Now in its seventeenth year under the direction of pianist/leader Oscar Hernández, the SHO has collected two GRAMMY Awards – the first in 2002 for Across 110th Street as Best Salsa/Merengue Album, the second in 2007 for Viva La Tradición as Best Tropical Latin Album.

"The music that the orchestra's members helped create merges ferocious Afro–Caribbean rhythms, arrangements that rev up hard–riffing horns and modern jazz harmonies, vocals that can be suavely romantic or flamboyantly im­provisatory, and lyrics that encompass both the pleasures of the dance floor and the pride and aspirations of the barrio."
