Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (January 26, 2019)

Paquito d’Rivera was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1948. When he was a child, his father took him to the Tropicana night club and to concerts by bands and orchestras. He started saxophone lessons with his father at age 5. In 1960, he was enrolled in the Havana Conservatory of Music where he also learned to play the clarinet. In 1965, at age 17, he was the featured soloist of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. In 1981, while on a concert tour in Spain, he sought asylum with the American Embassy, apparently motivated by an unpleasant conversation with Che Guevara the previous year. Today’s edition of BRP features music composed by Paquito d”Rivera.
