MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship and GRAMMY ®-winner Dafnis Prieto conducts the DownBeat Award-winning Frost Latin Jazz Orchestra. The program will highlight music from the GRAMMY ®-winning album, The Omni-American Book Club, by Frost professor and GRAMMY ®-winner Brian Lynch. DownBeat said the album "has elevated Lynch's vast oeuvre to ambitious new heights of accomplishment and acclaim." Lynch joins on trumpet and Prieto on drums. NPR says Prieto, who is Cuban, "stretches and often shatters the expectations of straight-ahead jazz." Don't miss this special night.
