CD/DOWNLOAD/ALBUM: Paquito D'Rivera's "Jazz Meets the Classics" out on Aug. 5th
Legendary Cuban born woodwind master Paquito D'Rivera will release his new classical meets jazz fusion recording on his own Paquito Records on August 5th! 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.
This DC Jazz Festival Weekend, Remember the Jam Sessions
In town tonight are clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera and his ensemble, pianist Marc Cary, rock- and hip-hop-inflected quartet Butcher Brown, legendary drummer Ginger Baker, and saxophonists Braxton Cook and David Sanchez among many, many others.
