Grammy-winning pianist Arturo O'Farrill, founder and director of Lincoln Center’s Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, and members of the Latin band Jazzismo, led by Rick Davies, take the stage in this special jazz cabaret evening. Jazzismo is joined by O'Farrill's sons, Zack (drums) and Adam (trumpet), who are gaining recognition as stellar musicians in their own right. The group performs both original compositions and Afro-Cuban and Latin jazz standards. O’Farrill and members of Jazzismo are in residence for the week, joining UVM professors and FlynnArts teaching artists as educators for the Summertime Jazz Intensive, a week-long collaborative jazz education program co-sponsored by the Flynn Center and UVM.
