Paquito D'Rivera

It's almost fifty-eight years to the day that Charlie Parker's joined the Hot Seven in jazz heaven, but Bird lives, as the saying goes, in this case through consummate Cuban multi-reedist Paquito D'Rivera, who brings an Afro-Cuban flair to standard bebop repertoire. Cue the violins as he recreates Parker's seminal 1950 collection of ballads, Charlie Parker with Strings, a well-suited complement to D'Rivera's diaphanous sound. Parker was no stranger to Latin clave, having recorded with Machito and Chico O'Farrill, and D'Rivera mines that catalogue with an uncanny, virtuosic style that channels the ghost of a legend.
