Bill O'Connell's Latin All Stars Tribute to Dave Valentin

with Andrea Brachfeld

After a 40-year long career that has seen him excel as a leader, soloist, arranger, musical director, and accompanist for some of the most celebrated names in jazz and Latin music, Bill O’Connell can lay claim to a track record of challenging and artistic-diverse triumphs that few of his peers can match. As a recording artist, his 13 dates as a leader have drawn universal critical acclaim while his talents as a pianist and arranger have been tapped by a diverse range of noted soloists to elevate their sessions. Today, as both a respected educator and leader of The Latin Jazz All-Stars, O’Connell’s professional life brims with new opportunities to express and fulfill his singular music vision.

Andrea Brachfeld

“Everyday I feel blessed to be alive
and to be able to play the flute, compose my music,
and continue to grow in whatever direction I am taken.”
