Nine Flags is an album by Cuban composer-arranger Chico O'Farrill featuring performances recorded in 1966 for the Impulse! label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 3 stars stating "The overall music is quite different from O'Farrill's usual Afro-Cuban jazz outings... None of the individual songs caught on, and the interpretations are usually quite concise, but this LP (which has not yet been reissued) is generally quite fun".[2]
