Fernando Otero Wins Latin Grammy Award
Congratulations to Fernando Otero, winner of the 2010 Latin Grammy Award for Best Classical Album. Otero picked up the Grammy at the 11th annual Latin Grammy Award ceremonies, held this year at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas last Thursday, November 11. The award was for Otero's latest album, Vital (World Village), the follow-up to his 2008 Nonesuch release, Pagina de Buenos Aires, which the Guardian described as being filled with "a savage intensity that sweeps the listener away."

Otero and his band perform at the second annual Nublu Jazz Festival Tuesday night, November 16, at Nublu in New York's East Village, and at Zinc Bar in Greenwich Village this Wednesday, the latter as part of the month-long New Dimensions in Latin Jazz series at the venue, presented by the Sauter Piano Company.
