Afro Latin Jazz Alliance

Afro Latin Jazz Alliance ALJA is dedicated to preserving the music and heritage of big band Latin Jazz through performance and education. The non-profit Afro Latin Jazz Alliance (ALJA) was established by Arturo O'Farrill in 2007 to promote Afro Latin Jazz through a comprehensive array of performances, educational programs, recordings and international cultural diplomacy initiatives.

ALJA serves as the institutional home of the GRAMMY winning Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra established in 2002, and self produces the Orchestra's annual performance season at Symphony Space (2007 - 2014), and maintains a weekly engagement for the Orchestra at the famed jazz club Birdland. Arturo O'Farrill's debut album with the Orchestra, Una Noche Inolvidable, earned a GRAMMY® Award nomination in 2006

Ivan Renta Quintet Recorded Live at Drom

Tonight's program presents a classic live performance of the Ivan Renta Quintet, offering hard-driving Latin Jazz by veteran saxophonist Renta along with top NYC-based musicians. For more than the last 10 years, Ivan Renta has been the leader of the saxophone section for the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of composer and pianist Arturo O’Farrill. Ivan has been a featured soloist on all their Grammy award-winning and nominated albums, including the most recent, “Four Questions”, which was awarded the “Best Latin Jazz album” in 2020. Ivan is also considered one of the top sax players in the Latin scene, a featured collaborator with other greats like Eddie Palmieri, Willie Colon, Ray Barreto, Paquito D'Rivera, and the legendary Tito Puente. This show was originally performed and recorded on June 24 at Drom as part of an ongoing curatorial partnership with ALJA.

Ivan Renta Quintet is Ivan Renta/saxophone, Edsel Gomez/piano, Alex Ayala/bass, Vince Cherico/drums, Tony Rosa/congas

I just watched Arturo's interview with Tiffany Cross' show on MSNBC. Music, including Afro/Latin and jazz in general have always been a big part of my life (as a fan; sadly, I'm not that talented) going back to when I was in HS in NYC. Very impressed re his efforts to boost the music and the players during these insane times, so I just made a donation. Least I can do...
