Paquito D'Rivera - Spice It Up!
Item# JD342

Product Description

"I'm impressed anew ... by the technical and emotional equipoise of Paquito's alto, soprano, and clarinet improvisations: his lyric focus and fierce rhythmic drive, the ease of execution in navigating complex harmonic changes, the dancing undercurrent of South America and the Caribbean, the complex chromatic elisions and bluesy grooves of swing and bop, the steely articulation and dynamic control of a classically-trained saxophonist. I'm actually kind of stunned." - Chip Stein, JazzTimes, June 1999
