Adam O'Farrill is a force of nature, a brilliant trumpeter who took 3rd place in the Thelonious Monk Competition and is the recipient of two ASCAP awards. His approach combines the bluster of his age (he'll be 22 years old at the time of this concert) with the finesse of a master and the wisdom of being surrounded by music 24/7. O'Farrill was raised in a family where music was inescapable. His father is Grammy award winning pianist/composer/arranger Arturo O'Farrill, his mother is classical pianist Alison Deane, his older brother is an in-demand NYC drummer and his grandfather was the legendary Chico O'Farrill who composed and arranged for Benny Goodman, Machito, Stan Kenton and Dizzy Gillespie. Adam's talent and abilities combined with his strong character and his father's continuous message to stay true to his vision have served him well. He is a focused, creative musician who has surrounded himself with other brilliant, like-minded individuals and has thus created a new paradigm, a new music, and a unique composing style that is musically engaging, energetic, surprising and humorous. The piano-less quartet O'Farrill will present at the Jazz Center includes his brother Zack on drums along with saxophonist Chad Lefkowitz-Brown and bassist Walter Stinson. Their new album Stranger Days has received positive reviews from the New York Times, New York City Jazz Record and All Music Guide to Jazz.
