For years the go-to pianist and arranger for artists such as Mongo
SantaMaria, Dave Valentin, Gato Barbieri,The Fort Apache Band and many others, Bill O'Connell has perhaps more that any other pianist developed a true melding of Latin and Jazz music. His own playing-from its robust chordal comping to its exuberant and sometimes knotty solos-transcends categorization and combines rhythmic complexities with glittering single note runs in a sort of Bud Powell-meets-Chick-Corea sound. O'Connell provides a thoughtful program of originals and a few re-imagined standards filled with energy and high spirits from a powerful voice in Latin Jazz.
