Cuba: The Conversation Continues
I am excited to announce that ""Cuba: The Conversation Continues" is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
Recorded in Havana 48 hours after President Obama announced his plan to normalize relations between the U.S. and Cuba, Arturo O'Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra's 'Cuba: The Conversation Continues' is a powerful symbol of cultural diplomacy, a juxtaposition of music and current events. The new album builds upon the conversation started by Dizzy Gillespie and Cuban percussionist Chano Pozo - a musical dialogue that bridged the gap between jazz and Afro-Cuban music. O'Farrill brings top composers from both the U.S. and Cuba to create a dazzling musical tapestry, successfully fulfilling Dizzy s dream of creating 'universal music'.
I will be hosting the Workshop Stage at the HORDE Festival featuring 311, Blues Traveler, Big head Todd and the Monsters, The Verve Pipe, and more. The festival takes places next Thursday, July 9th in Clarkston, MI. Tickets are on sale now at TicketMaster.com.

NYC By DJ Logic
NYC to me is a melting pot, a mecca. There are so many different people sounds, cultures, flavors. Obviously I travel a lot for work but every time I step back into NYC it is astounding to me that so many different facets live together here in harmony. I am blessed to have been born and grown up in the Bronx during a pivotal time in music history. In my travels through the 5 boroughs I cant help but notice the melding of art, culture, fashion and music and the influences on every New Yorkers lives. I love NYC. I am NYC.
Blue Note - The Blue Note is a NYC mainstay and one of my favorite places to play and collaborate. The Blue Note is somewhere every Jazz great makes a stop at when they come through NYC. New York is the original home of the Blue Note which now has outposts in Milan, Italy, Toyko and Nagoya, Japan.
