 Paquito DRivera Column 
With 30 solo recordings and fourteen GRAMMY Awards, Paquito D'Rivera is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer. Born in Havana, Cuba, he performed at an early age with the National Theater Orchestra, later studying at the Havana Conservatory of Music and becoming a featured soloist with the Cuban National Symphony. In 1979, Paquito and Chucho Valdez formed the innovative band Irakere, an ensemble with an explosive mixture of jazz, rock, classical and traditional Cuban music. He was an original member of the United Nation Orchestra, founded by Dizzy Gillespie in 1988 to showcase the fusion of Latin and Caribbean influences with jazz. While Paquito's discography reflects a dedication and enthusiasm for swing, bebop, and Latin music, his contributions to classical music are impressive. His works often reveal his widespread and eclectic musical interests, which range from Afro-Cuban rhythms and melodies, including influences encountered in his many travels and back to his classical origins. His numerous commissions include compositions for Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, the National Symphony Orchestra and Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Ying String Quartet, the International Double Reed Society, and the Grant Park Music Festival. A wide-ranging list of artists that Paquito has performed with includes Dizzy Gillespie, David Amram, Mario Bauza, Yo-Yo Ma, Gloria Estefan, among many, many others.
