For jazz pianist, Obama's trip to Cuba 'beyond what I'd ever thought I'd see'

Arturo O'Farrill took a few moments to talk about Cuba before his concert at New York's Birdland on Sunday night. O'Farrill is son of "Chico," the famous Cuban jazz composer and conductor. Arturo is carrying on his dad's legacy, both on the jazz scene and as a Cuban-American. And he is planning to bring his father's ashes with him on a journey to Cuba soon.
