PAQUITO D’RIVERA QUINTET — ALFREDO RODRÍGUEZ & PEDRITO MARTINEZ DUO
Friday, March 8, 2019
Enjoy a night of Latin jazz featuring two generations of Cuban masters. In his Symphony Center debut, 14-time Grammy® Award-winning clarinetist and saxophonist Paquito D’Rivera, a co-founder of the landmark ensemble Irakere, performs with his masterful quintet.
World-class Afro-Cuban hand percussionist Alfredo Rodríguez and Pedrito Martinez, a classically trained pianist and protégé of producer Quincy Jones, form a lively duo, exploring Cuban dance through a modern jazz lens.
Alfredo Rodriguez and Pedrito Martinez will sign CDs following the performance.
