Paquito D'Rivera Jazz Meets the Classics CD release show

Paquito DíRivera defies categorization. The winner of numerous GRAMMYģ Awards, he is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and for his achievements as a classical composer. The Cuban jazz reedman has recorded more than 30 solo albums and founded many acclaimed ensembles dedicated to celebrating Latin music, including the Chamber Jazz Ensemble, the Paquito DíRivera Big Band, and the Paquito DíRivera Quintet. While DíRiveraís discography reflects a passion for jazz, bebop, and Latin music, his contributions to classical music are significant as well, having performed as a soloist with orchestras like the London Philharmonic, the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony, and the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra. These sets at Dizzyís Club Coca-Cola will showcase DíRivera at his best as Jazz Meets the Classics.
