On this album, jazz greats Arturo O’Farrill and Chucho Valdés craft a brilliant tribute not only to their fathers but also to the next generation, who will carry forward their legacy. The album brings together two influential families in Afro-Cuban music in a celebration of their late patriarchs: pianist, composer, arranger and bandleader Bebo Valdés and composer, arranger and bandleader Chico O´Farrill. It’s a multi-generational tribute led by O’Farrill and Valdés — Bebo and Chico’s sons, and major figures in their own right — which also features the next generation, including pianist Leyanis Valdés, drummer Jessie Valdés, trumpeter Adam O’Farrill and drummer Zack O’Farrill.
