Always one to seek out new ways to express his music vision, Bill O'Connell has embraced a broad stylistic swath of jazz, Latin and Brazilian idioms while experimenting with equally diverse instrumental combinations, from a duo to unconventional trio settings and ensembles of various sizes. His well-known resume includes long stints as keyboardist and arranger for the legendary Cuban conguero Mongo Santamaria and flautist Dave Valentνn with a diverse array of jazz and Latin artists, from saxophonists Sonny Rollins and Gato Barbieri to trumpeters Chet Baker and Jerry Gonzalez With friends like Randy Brecker, Craig Handy, Conrad Herwig, Andrea Brachfeld and Dan Carillo on hand, Jazz Latin is more than a release, it is an event.
