Arturo O’Farrill and the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra with Dr. Cornel West

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 6 PM Online
Recorded live at the Kennedy Center in 2021, this online premiere features seven-time Grammy winner Arturo O’Farrill as he pays tribute to one of the most provocative critics and social activists of our time: virtuosic speaker, scholar, and civil rights icon Dr. Cornel West. Inspired by what he called the “innate musicality of West’s words,” O’Farrill and his Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra perform original compositions with West that draw on African American jazz, blues, and chanted sermon to explore arts, politics, progress, and how uncertainty and improvisation often come hand-in-hand with hope.
