REVIEW: Arturo O'Farrill Sextet, 'Boss Level,' Zoho Music >>

There's no way Arturo O'Farrill's Latin Jazz Orchestra will prepare you for this! 'Boss Level' (Zoho Music) by the Arturo Farrill Sextet is a staunchly bebopping 10-track manifesto recorded after they performed for a solid week at Birdland in New York City to hone their seemingly telepathic chops. Of course, pianist Arturo-son of the great Chico O'Farrill-has been jamming with the trumpeter (Adam) and the drummer (Zack) of this sextet forever. They're both his sons. With three O'Farrills amid the ghost of Grandpa Chico smiling, this is more than just a family affair. It's a whole 'nother O'Farrill level. 'Boss Level.'
