About the Artist

Join us for an evening of essential Paquito D’Rivera when Paquito brings his quintet to Iridium for just two nights! Winner of fourteen Grammy Awards, Paquito defies categorization. With his explosive mixture of jazz, rock, classical and traditional Cuban music he is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer by being the the first artist to win Grammy's in both Classical and Latin Jazz categories-- for Stravinsky’s Historia del Soldado (L'Histoire du Soldat) and Brazilian Dreams with New York Voices. In addition to his extraordinary performing career as an instrumentalist, Mr. D’Rivera has rapidly gained a reputation as an accomplished composer. The National Endowment for the Arts website affirms "he has become the consummate multinational ambassador, creating and promoting a cross-culture of music that moves effortlessly among jazz, Latin, and Mozart.”
