Founded in 2000 by composer-arranger Oscar Hernández, the Grammy-winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra is one of the most formidable, thrilling and authentic Latin jazz collectives working today. Born into a large Puerto Rican family living in the Bronx, near Spanish Harlem, Hernández started playing trumpet at age 12, then switched to piano. By the 1970s, he was arranging and working with Latin luminaries, such as Tito Puente, Ray Barretto and Celia Cruz. In the ‘80s, Hernandez produced, arranged and played piano for Rubén Blades while simultaneously leading his own band, Seis del Solar. In 2000, he joined forces with producer Aaron Levinson to record a hand-assembled Latin jazz ensemble, which became the Spanish Harlem Orchestra. If you like your music Latin-hot, don’t miss the return of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra.
