Bill O'Connell is an award-winning pianist, keyboardist, composer, and arranger celebrated in both Latin and contemporary jazz. Since becoming Mongo Santamaría's keyboardist in 1977, O'Connell has performed with, led, and arranged for such heavyweights as Astrud Gilberto, Sonny Rollins, Paquito D'Rivera, and Chet Baker, and he recorded over a dozen albums with the Grammy Award-winning flutist Dave Valentín. O'Connell is one of the modern greats as both a player and writer, and The Latin Jazz All-Stars, his primary band, truly lives up to its name. What better way to spend a hot Monday night?
