THE JAZZ SESSION #67: ARTURO O'FARRILL. Jason Crane interviews pianist,
composer, arranger and bandleader Arturo O’Farrill. He won a Grammy for
his 2008 recording Song For Chico (ZoHo, 2008), named for his father,
composer/arranger Chico O’Farrill. In this wide-ranging interview,
O’Farrill talks about the forgotten roots of jazz, the need to embrace
hand-drumming, and how jazz can only move forward by learning about its
past.
