The Northampton Jazz Festival is honored to present Paquito D'Rivera and his Paquito D'Rivera Quintet. Now celebrating his 70th year, Paquito defies categorization. Born in Havana, Cuba, he is the winner of 14 GRAMMY Awards, and is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer. There are few jazz artists with the high honor of one-name recognition – Louis, Miles, Dexter, Sonny – you get the drift. Paquito has that first name recognition status not only in Jazz, but also the Latin Jazz and Classical worlds. Come out and join us as Jazz Abounds Downtown with Paquito!
