Paquito D'Rivera: To Bird with Strings

NEA Jazz Master, Carnegie Hall Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and 14-time Grammy Award winner Paquito D'Rivera is one of the greatest musicians alive. This program explores one of his favorite albums: Charlie Parker’s Bird with Strings. D’Rivera and his ensemble will perform selections from the original recording, arrangements of unrecorded tunes from the project, and new takes on Parker’s work with Latin jazz legends like Machito and Chico O’Farrill.
