Об исполнителе (группе)
Cuba-born and New York-based saxophonist and clarinet player Paquito D'Rivera has balanced a career in Latin jazz with commissions as a classical composer and appearances with symphony orchestras. Classical New Jersey wrote, "whether playing Bach or post-bop, D'Rivera's mastery of the instruments and [his] expressive capability is unquestionable." D'Rivera inherited his understanding of music from his father, Tito, a classical saxophonist and conductor. At the age of five, he began being tutored in musical theory by his father. Within a year, he was playing well enough to be paid as a musician. By the age of seven, he became the youngest musician to endorse a musical instrument (Selmer saxophones). Three years later, he performed with the National Theater Orchestra of Havana. Although he initially played soprano saxophone, D'Rivera switched to the alto after teaching himself to play via the book Jimmy Dorsey Saxophone Method: A School of Rhythmic Saxophone Playing. Strengthening his knowledge of music and playing techniques, D'Rivera began studying at the Havana Conservatory of Music in 1960. In 1965, he became a featured soloist with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. After playing with the Cuban Army Band, he joined pianist Chu Chu Valdez to found the Orchestra Cubana de Musica Moderna, and served as the band's conductor for two years. In 1973, he joined eight members of the Orchestra Cubana de Musica Moderna to form Irakere. The group, which fused jazz, rock, classical, and traditional Cuban music, became the first post-Castro Cuban group to sign with an American record label. Along with the band, D'Rivera toured the world and Irakere became a top-rated jazz ensemble. In 1979, the group joined American jazz and rock performers for a music festival, Havana Jam, that was recorded and released the following year. In 1981, D'Rivera defected from Cuba and moved to the United States. Before long, he was playing with such American musicians as Dizzy Gillespie, David Amram, and Mario Bauza. According to Bauza, D'Rivera is "the only musician I know on the scene playing the real Latin jazz, all others are playing Afro-Cuban jazz." D'Rivera's debut solo album, Blowin', released in June 1981, was followed by Mariel a year later. Time magazine wrote, "the bopped-up, romantic, salty and sensuous jazz that he makes recognizes no real political boundary. It has its roots equally in the hothouse Latin rhythms of his homeland and in the high flying horns of Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Lee Konitz." In 1988, D'Rivera was invited to become a charter member of Gillespie's 15-piece all-star group, the United Nations Orchestra. The same year, he was a guest soloist with the National Symphony Orchestra for their world premier performance of Roger Kellaway's David Street Blues at the John F. Kennedy Center. He continued to be involved with a variety of projects. In addition to performing with the Paquito D'Rivera Big Band, the Paquito D'Rivera Quintet, a chamber music group, Triangulo, and a calypso and salsa band, the Caribbean Jazz Project, he began to accept commissions to compose for chamber groups and orchestras. In 1989, he composed "New York Suite" for the Gerald Danovich Saxophone Quartet, and five years later, he composed "Aires Tropicales" for the Aspen Wind Quintet. The piece has subsequently been performed by at least four quintets.
Portraits of Cuba In 1997, D'Rivera's album Portraits of Cuba received a Grammy award as "Best Latin Jazz Performance." During the summer of 1999, he collaborated with Germany's Chamber Orchestra Werneck in a series of programs, D'Rivera Meets Mozart. D'Rivera was artist-in-residence for the New Jersey Performing Arts Commission and artistic director in charge of jazz programming for the New Jersey Chamber Music Society. His autobiography, My Saxual Life, was published by the Spanish book publisher Seix Barral, along with a novel, En Tus Brazos Morenos, scheduled to follow shortly afterwards. The album Live at the Blue Note appeared in the spring of 2000, and Habanera followed in early 2001. In 2001, D'Rivera released the Clarinetist, Vol. 1, his first recording to rely exclusively on the strengths of its woodwind namesake. 2002 saw the release of Brazilian Dreams, a live recording featuring the New York Voices and trumpeter Claudio Roditi. It was followed by the swinging Big Band Time in 2003, Music of Both Worlds, Tribute to Cal Tjader and Riberas in 2004. and the Jazz Chamber Trio in 2005.
 
Об альбоме (сборнике)
The border between classical and jazz music has always been a fluid one, with composers from each camp finding inspiration on both sides of the divide. It wasn’t long ago that Darius Milhaud, Igor Stravinsky and Bela Bartok were studying the exciting, extemporaneous new music of jazz musicians. Of course, many jazz musicians were just as transfixed by the historical developments made by classical composers.
The Grammy Award winning woodwind master Paquito D’Rivera has a long history with classical music. As a young boy, he was introduced to a wide variety of music, from Mozart to Ellington, by his classical saxophone playing father in Cuba. On his new recording – Jazz Meets the Classics, D’Rivera and his wonderful ensemble have recorded intriguing arrangements of the classical repertoire of legendary composers, including Chopin, Beethoven and Mozart, for a jazz sextet.
D’Rivera has long been a highly regarded clarinetist and saxophonist in the realms of jazz and Latin music. As a boy, he was regarded as a wunderkind on clarinet following in his father’s classical performing footsteps. D’Rivera was weaned on the music of Mozart and Beethoven but also on that of Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington. For D’Rivera, the bridge between classical and jazz was a natural one.
For the recording, D’Rivera assembled a sextet of his regular collaborators, all astonishing musicians in their own right: trumpeter/trombonist Diego Urcola, pianist Alex Brown, bassist Oscar Stagnaro, percussionist Arturo Stable, and drummer Mark Walker. Special guest pianist Pepe Rivero was also featured on two arrangements of Chopin and an original piece that he wrote for the ensemble.
The ensemble convened and recorded the album live at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York City on June 14, 2012.
The recording begins with Hilario Duran’s arrangement of Chopin’s “Fantasia Impromptu,” with its rolling rhythm and swirling melody, which is followed by Brown’s take on Beethoven’s “Pathetique” Piano Concerto entitled “Beethoven Peru” in a moving Latin waltz. D’Rivera’s gospel inflected “Adagio” stems from Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto in A Major, while Michael Mossman’s take on Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an uptempo affair cheekily entitled “Die Zauberclarinete.” D’Rivera’s arrangement of Cuban zarzuela composer Ernesto Lecuona’s “Al Fin Te Vi” is a prancing vehicle featuring the leader’s fluid clarinet and Stagnaro’s wonderful bass work.
Mauricio Pinchi Cardozo’s arrangement of Augustin Pio Barrios Mangoré’s “Las Abejas” is a mysterious, yet aggressive, piece highlighting Brown’s tremendous piano facility. Special guest pianist Pepe Riveros provides two arrangements of Chopin: first is the percussive “Vals de la Media Hora” followed by “Nocturno en la Celda,” a mellow piece featuring D’Rivera’s heart wilting clarinet. Rivero’s “Pa Bebo” is a tribute to recently deceased Cuban piano legend Bebo Valdes and is a true rumba romp. The recording concludes with Oriente López’s arrangement of Chopin’s “E minor Prelude,” a tastefully wrought piece with Afro-Cuban flair.
An invigorating blend of influences that have made Paquito D’Rivera the musician he is today inform the music on Jazz Meets the Classics. The mixture of jazz, classical and Afro-Latin traditions into a cohesive whole is wonderfully executed by the leader and his phenomenal sextet.
