"Watching these crack musicians rev up their complex, precision polyrhythms and fire up five-part horn harmonies is as thrilling as riding a horse that suddenly breaks into a gallop. Somebody may have the reins, but the sinewy power is unpredictable … a lesson in classic salsa." - Los Angeles Times

Spanish Harlem Orchestra

The Grammy Award Winning Spanish Harlem Orchestra (SHO) has established itself as a standard bearer of contemporary Latin music. Directed by world-renowned pianist, arranger, and producer Oscar Hernández, the thirteen-member all-star ensemble has reintroduced the classic sounds of New York City Salsa to music lovers worldwide. The self-produced Spanish Harlem Orchestra is a stunning follow-up to their Grammy award-winning Viva la Tradición, 2007 Grammy nominated United We Swing, 2004 Grammy award-winning album Across 110th St., and their 2002 debut, Un Gran Día En El Barrio.

Now in its fifteenth year, the Spanish Harlem Orchestra is one of the most formidable and authentic Latin jazz combos of today. Yet for all of its appeal with contemporary audiences, the group’s success is actually rooted in the past. A lively and energetic affair, Spanish Harlem Orchestra draws on inspiration from the music’s history and enduring traditions. The collection is comprised largely of original compositions and arrangements of classic salsa tunes by bandleader/founder Oscar Hernández as well as enlisting the support of veteran composer and arranger Gil Lopez on three compositions in collaboration with Marco Bermudez (“Caribe Soy,” “Dulce Compañera,” and “Que Linda Son Las Latinas”).
