March Artist of the Month - <i>Just Jazz</i> with Bob Bernotas - Sun., Mar. 8, 2009 Chico O'Farrill
Just Jazz Presents composer-arranger Chico O'Farrill
Sunday, March 8 (postponed for weather reasons):

During his weekly "Just Jazz Presents..." segment (midnight-1:00 am), Bob Bernotas will feature the music of March Just Jazz Artist of the Month Chico O'Farrill.

Havana-born composer-arranger Chico O'Farrill (1921-2001) was equally at home in the parallel worlds of straight ahead and Afro-Cuban jazz. Over the course of his long and prolific career he made valuable contributions to the big bands of Benny Goodman, Stan Kenton, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, Machito, Miguelito Valdés, and Mario Bauzá, among others, and created such major works as The Afro-Cuban Jazz Suite (for Machito), The Manteca Suite (for Gillespie), The Aztec Suite (for Art Farmer), and The Tanga Suite (for Bauzá). In addition, during most of the 1950s and again starting in the mid 1990s, O'Farrill led his own big band.
