You should be a fan of trumpeter Adam O’Farrill. He’s an impressive young talent and a proven bandleader. Oh, sure, he’s good, particularly good for 23 years old, at that. He’s already wowed folks playing in Stephan Crump’s Rhombal and on his 2016 debut album, Stranger Days. Now he’s back with a new album dropping this week on the Biophilia Record label called El Maquech. He’s back with the same band — O’Farrill on trumpet, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on tenor sax, Walter Stinson on bass, and Adam’s brother Zack O’Farrill on drums — and with the same sensibility, putting structure and whimsy together to make something beautifully unique. Check out the first single, “Siiva Moiiva”, after the jump.
Adam O’Farrill – trumpet
Chad Lefkowitz-Brown – tenor sax

El Maquech, the sophomore album from trumpeter Adam O’Farrill, is out this Friday, June 1st on Biophilia Records.
