Chico O'Farrill ‎– Heart Of A Legend. Label: Milestone (4) ‎– MCD-9299-2. Piano – Arturo O'Farrill. Soprano Saxophone – Mario Rivera (2) (tracks: 9). Tenor Saxophone – Gato Barbieri (tracks: 8), Mike Migliore, Peter Brainin.

This album, "Heart of a Legend", was recorded in December, 1998 through July, 1999, and released in the fall of 1999, just two years before his death in 2001, at the age of 79. It was nominated for a Grammy award, as was its predecessor Pure Emotion, released in 1995. Heart of a Legend was not his final album to be released (I believe that would be Carambola), but I think that it can fairly be considered a milestone in his Jazz legacy. Chico O'Farrill was born in Havana and came to New York for a time in the late '40's/early '50's before returning to Cuba and then to Mexico in 1957. He returned to New York in 1965 for good, and over the course of his career he made significant contributions to the music of Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Quincy Jones, Charlie Parker, Count Basie, and many others. A good synopsis of his life is given on the jazzhouse.

Arturo O'Farrill (born June 22, 1960) is a jazz musician, the son of Latin jazz musician, arranger and bandleader Chico O'Farrill, and pianist, composer, and director for the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra. He is best known for his contributions to contemporary Latin jazz (more specifically Afro-Cuban jazz), having received Grammy Awards and nominations, though he has trained in other forms such as free jazz and experimented briefly with hip hop.

Arturo "Chico" O'Farrill (October 28, 1921 – June 27, 2001) was a Cuban composer, arranger, and conductor, best known for his work in the Latin idiom, specifically Afro-Cuban jazz or "Cubop", although he also composed traditional jazz pieces and even symphonic works. Born to an Irish father and a German mother, he played the trumpet early in his career.
