Overview

Extraordinary saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer Paquito D'Rivera shows his love for vocal quartet music and Brazilian composers on Brazilian Dreams. As one of the most influential and dynamic musicians of his time, D'Rivera's distinctive command of Afro-Cuban jazz, Brazilian jazz, big band, folklore, and world music has attracted critical acclaim and loyal audiences. Joined by New York Voices and trumpeter Claudio Roditi, among others, D'Rivera's abundant talents and joyous enthusiasm make this "live" concert recording both memorable and inspiring. Ten songs, including such classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim as "Corcovado" and "Desafinado," are elegantly performed alongside two of Luiz Bonfá's Brazilian jazz masterpieces titled "Manha de Carnival" and "Gentle Rain." The ensemble presents these great songs as a medley on this program. D'Rivera's mastery of the clarinet is a sonic joy on "Meu Amigo." He provides spirited accompaniment to the New York Voices' four-part harmony with high-quality improvisation. Additional highlights include Claudio Roditi's composition "Red on Red," which has become a standard in the Brazilian jazz repertoire. Whether leading his own ensembles or playing with renowned jazz masters, Paquito D'Rivera continues to make a decidedly fresh imprint on Latin and Brazilian jazz.
