Paquito D'Rivera is a fundamental musician in the worlds of Latin jazz and classical music, as a composer and instrumentalist. He is a NEA Jazz Master, multi-Grammy Award winner, and recipient of countless international awards. D'Rivera is also one of the great clarinet players of his generation, with a seven-decade career in Cuba, the United States, and the world.
For his return to Music of the Americas, Paquito created a tribute to his beloved instrument and its music, with original pieces and arrangements for a clarinet ensemble that includes some of his closest collaborators.
