Featuring: Paquito D'Rivera - Clarinet & Sax
Oscar Stagnaro - Bass
Alex Brown - Piano
Mark Walker - Drums

Paquito D'Rivera defies categorization. The winner of fourteen GRAMMY Awards, he is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer.

Born in Havana, Cuba, he performed at age 10 with the National Theater Orchestra, studied at the Havana Conservatory of Music and, at 17, became a featured soloist with the Cuban National Symphony. As a founding member of the Orquesta Cubana de Musica Moderna, he directed that group for two years, while at the same time playing both the clarinet and saxophone with the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. He eventually went on to premier several works by notable Cuban composers with the same orchestra. Additionally, he was a founding member and co-director of the innovative musical ensemble Irakere. With its explosive mixture of jazz, rock, classical and traditional Cuban music never before heard, Irakere toured extensively throughout America and Europe, won several GRAMMY nominations (1979, 1980) and a GRAMMY (1979).

His numerous recordings include more than 30 solo albums. In 1988, he was a founding member of the United Nation Orchestra, a 15-piece ensemble organized by Dizzy Gillespie to showcase the fusion of Latin and Caribbean influences with jazz. D'Rivera continues to appear as guest conductor. A GRAMMY was awarded the United Nation Orchestra in 1991, the same year D'Rivera received a Lifetime Achievement Award from Carnegie Hall for his contributions to Latin music. Additionally, D'Rivera's highly acclaimed ensembles- the Chamber Jazz Ensemble, the Paquito D'Rivera Big Band, and the Paquito D'Rivera Quintet are in great demand world wide.
While Paquito D'Rivera's discography reflects a dedication and enthusiasm for Jazz, Bebop and Latin music, his contributions to classical music are impressive. They include solo performances with the London Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony, the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Brooklyn Philharmonic. He has also performed with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra, the Costa Rica National Symphony, the Simn Bolivar Symphony Orchestra, the Bronx Arts Ensemble, and the St. Luke's Chamber Orchestra, among others. In his passion to bring Latin repertoire to greater prominence, Mr. D'Rivera has successfully created, championed and promoted all types of classical compositions, including his three chamber compositions recorded live in concert with distinguished cellist Yo-Yo Ma in September 2003. The chamber work "Merengue," from that live concert at Zankel Hall, was released by Sony Records and garnered Paquito his 7th GRAMMY as Best Instrumental Composition 2004.

In addition to his extraordinary performing career as an instrumentalist, Mr. D'Rivera has rapidly gained a reputation as an accomplished composer. The prestigious music house, Boosey and Hawkes, is the exclusive publisher of Mr. D'Rivera's compositions. Recent recognition of his compositional skills came with the award of a 2007 John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in Music Composition, and the 2007-2008 appointment as Composer-In-Residence at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts with the Orchestra of St. Luke's. As part of the Caramoor Latin American music initiative, Sonidos Latinos, D'Rivera's new concerto for double bass and clarinet/saxophone, "Conversations with Cachao," pays tribute to Cuba's legendary bass player, Israel "Cachao" Lopez. D'Rivera's works often reveal his widespread and eclectic musical interests, which range from Afro-Cuban rhythms and melodies, including influences encountered in his many travels, and back to his classical origins. Inspiration for another recent composition, "The Cape Cod Files", comes from such disparate sources as Benny Goodman's intro to the Eubie Blake popular song "Memories of You", Argentinean Milonga, improvisations on the music of Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona, and North American boogie-woogie. His numerous commissions include compositions for Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Library of Congress, the National Symphony Orchestra and Rotterdam Philharmonic, the Turtle Island String Quartet, Ying String Quartet, the International Double Reed Society, Syracuse University, Montreal's Gerald Danovich Saxophone Quartet, and the Grant Park Music Festival.

Another commission came about through ensemble Opus 21's interest in building bridges between audiences of different backgrounds. Dedicated to the works and art music of the 21st century, Opus 21 commissioned "The Chaser" and premiered it in May, 2006. In 2005, Imani Winds, a woodwind quintet committed to the exploration of diverse world music traditions and the broadening of the traditional wind quintet literature, commissioned "Kites." This work personifies freedom and the vision that liberty and independence have a foundation through culture and music. Just as a kite may fly freely, its path continues to be bound to the earth--its foundation, by the string.

In 1999, and in celebration of its 500 year history, the Universidad de Alcal de Henares presented Paquito with a special award recognizing his contribution to the arts, his humane qualities, and his defense of rights and liberties of artists around the world. The National Endowment for the Arts website affirms "he has become the consummate multinational ambassador, creating and promoting a cross-culture of music that moves effortlessly among jazz, Latin, and Mozart."

The New West Guitar Group (NWGG) has developed a wide spread reputation as one of the premier guitar ensembles in the world. Featuring guitarists Perry Smith (NYC) John Storie (LA) and Will Brahm (LA), NWGG performs classic pop covers, jazz standards and exciting originals. Their signature sound comes from an innovative style that highlights rhythm, beauty and virtuosity with the acoustic and electric guitar. Smith and Storie founded the group 10 years and today they continue to tour as a trio with Brahm throughout the United States and abroad.

Praised as "sharp and refined" by the Seattle Times, New West Guitar Group infuses its latest disc 'Big City' with its signature blend of laid-back virtuosity and expert arrangements that "sometimes verge on the orchestral" (All Music Guide). 'Big City' is the group's second release on Summit Records and the music is regularly featured on NPR and jazz/americana radio stations all over the country. Graduates of USC's Thornton School of Music, the trio's versatility as players and composers have given them the reputation as pioneers in the realm of guitar ensemble.

Championed by some of music's most celebrated figures, Sara Gazarek has emerged as a strikingly original artist with limitless potential. With three highly acclaimed CD's under her belt at the young age of 30, Sara has been hailed by the LA Times as "the next important jazz singer," and "impeccable," by the Winnipeg Free Press, Sara continues to seamlessly combine the intimacy of singer/songwriter stylings with the musical and improvisational elements of jazz. Blessed with a gorgeous, translucent voice, excellent pitch, and supple sense of time, Gazarek is steeped in the jazz tradition, but is not afraid to embrace the music that moves her generation. Her newest CD, Blossom & Bee (2012, Palmetto) was released to rave reviews, as Nick Mondello of Jazz Times has noted "'Blossom & Bee' has all the beauty, bite and superb workings of a winner. It's as good - or better - than some recent Grammy-nominated or winning female vocalist efforts." Sara is currently on faculty at the University of Southern California, leading the award-winning vocal jazz ensemble there and teaching privately.

Bertram Lehmann - Drums, Percussion
Gokul Ramdas - Backing Vocals
Matilde Soto - Aguliar Bralic - Backing Vocals

The Brazil Years (until 1993)

Rubens de La Corte was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He began studying classical guitar at the age of nine. At 13, he started playing the electric guitar. By the age of 16, Rubens professional career, including performances at local clubs and theatres in Sao Paulo, had begun. He was performing regularly with the bands "Funkfarra", "Staff" and "Jotta Paulo e Banda Oculos Escuros".

Ulisses Rocha, the virtuoso and accomplished Brazilian guitar player, was Rubens guitar mentor and instructor for a great part of his Brazil years. Ulisses guidance played a major role in shaping Rubens own skills as a guitar player and performer. Ulisses presence is felt to this day.

As a leader, Rubens' first project was "The Rubens de La Corte Group". The ensemble performed Rubens' original compositions as well as Brazilian, Jazz and Fusion standards. The group was active from 1987-1993.

From 1991-1993, Rubens performed with Brazilian singer/songwriter Marlui Miranda. Marlui Miranda is more than a singer; she is a cultural anthropologist. Marlui has lived with, learned the languages of and explored many of Brazil's native tribes. Through her music, Marlui has passed on the histories and cultures of Brazil's native people to future generations.

Rubens played guitar in several musical theatre productions including: * Little Shop Of Horrors (1992) * Grease (1992) * The Wiz (1993) * Opera do Malandro (1993) Guitarist/Musical Director

In addition to music, Rubens studied Architecture at Universidade de So Paulo-So Paulo, Brazil, and received a Bachelors Degree in Architecture and Urban Studies.

The Boston Years (1994-1998)

Rubens moved to Boston in 1994 to study at the Berklee College of Music, where he graduated in 1998, Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Composition and Guitar Performance.

While in Boston, Rubens studied guitar, improvisation, arranging and composition with:

Charlie Banacos, Hal Crook, Mick Goodrick, Bob Brookmeyer, Kenny Werner, Ed Tomasi, Donny Nolan, Phil Wilson, Brett Wilmott, Dave Newsam and Bruce Bartlett among others.

Rubens performance career continued during his time in Boston. He was a member of Zabumbatuq and Conexo Brasil. Both groups performed live shows regularly in and around the Boston area.

Also during that time, Rubens co-founded and co-led the group Brazz Jazz. Brazz Jazz began as a vocal/guitar duo performing Jazz and Brazilian standards. Through out the years, Brazz Jazz had remained true to its original goal.

Brazz Jazz has twice toured Brazil, in support of their debut CD "Kick Off Your Shoes", to remarkable success. Their CD had been the focus of several radio shows in Brazil, newspaper articles and was a consistent seller in music stores.

"A fundamental aspect of Brazz Jazz, which sets them apart from their peers, is the choice of material" states Ayrton Martini. Martini, a Brazilian music critic and producer adds, "Brazz Jazz escapes from the Bossa Nova as the obvious translation of Brazilian Jazz. The repertoire choices are not the usual Jazz standards and the songs are chosen with good taste and originality".

The New York Years (1998- present)

After completing his studies at Berklee, Rubens re-located to New York City to begin a Masters Degree Program at Queens College (CUNY). Rubens successfully completed his Masters of Arts Degree in Jazz Performance in 2000.

While at Queens College, Rubens had the opportunity to study with: Wayne Krantz, Sir Roland Hanna, Michael Mossman, Mark Elf and Maestro Maurice Peres.

Rubens was invited by Queens Collage to teach a series of jazz workshops, which were held in several New York City Public Schools.

The highlight performance for Rubens, while at Queens College, was a concert given in honor of Louis Armstrong. Rubens performed as part of The Queens College Jazz Orchestra and had the pleasure of playing with jazz legends Wynton Marsalis and Jon Hendricks.

After obtaining his Masters Degree, Rubens was invited to be the Musical Director and Guitar Player for Multi Grammy Nominee and Winner, Angelique Kidjo. Prior to embarking on their first world tour together, Rubens recorded the guitar tracks for Angelique's 2002 Grammy Nominated CD, "Black Ivory Soul".

Rubens continued to perform with Angelique Kidjo for ten years. Since they teamed up, they toured the world several times including concerts in Asia, Australia, Europe, Africa, North, Central and South America.

As part of Angelique Kidjo's group, Rubens had the opportunity to tour with: Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews Band, Josh Groban, Neville Brothers and Macy Grey.

In May 2004, the incomparable Brazilian-Jazz Pianist Eliane Elias (Concord) invited Rubens to join her group. Since then, they have been touring extensively in Asia, Europe, North and South America in support of Eliane's CDs "Dreamer", "Around the City", "Bossa Nova Stories" and "Light My Fire".

With Eliane's group, Rubens had the opportunity to perform, on stage, with: Marc Johnson, Toots Thielemans, Joe Lovano, Randy Brecker, Lincoln Goines, Danny Gottlieb, Paulo Braga, Rafael Barata, Maurcio Zottarelli, Satoshi Takeishi and Mark Walker.

Since 2011, Rubens has been a regular faculty at Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music in Chennai, India. During the residency, Rubens teaches guitar, harmony, arranging, ensembles and different aspects of a professional musician's life.

For the past three years, Rubens has been developing a new songwriting project called "Nomad". Inspired by his travels around the world, "Nomad" combines different music styles and has the participation of many renowned musicians and friends (Angelique Kidjo, Zeca Baleiro, Jair Oliveira, Oswaldinho do Acordeon, Ulisses Rocha, Di Melo, Karina Zeviani among others). The release date of "Nomad" is scheduled for July 2014.

Guitar Sessions Opening Ceremony/Concert Featuring Julien Kasper

He has performed extensively across the United States and Europe, and released three acclaimed CDs of all-original instrumental music. Guitar Player Magazine described Trance Groove, his most recent release this way: Exquisite tones, masterful execution, and innate soulfulness drive this jazzy, funky, bluesy, Sco-and-Beck-meet-Hendrix-for-drinks-at-the-Harvard-Psychedelic-Club instrumental joyride.
