Paquito D'Rivera Reimagines Charlie Parker's Bird with Strings

New York, NY (February 20, 2018) - NEA Jazz Master, Carnegie Hall Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and 14-time Grammy Award winner Paquito D'Rivera returns to Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater with To Bird with Strings for two nights only, March 16-17. To Bird with Strings is a tribute to Charlie Parker’s Bird with Strings, one of D’Rivera’s favorite albums and Parker’s best-selling record - the program was previously performed to sold-out audiences in The Appel Room in 2013. The program will feature selections from the original album, unrecorded arrangements from the project, and new takes on Parker’s work with Latin jazz legends like Machito and Chico O’Farrill. D’Rivera will be joined by his ensemble, including pianist Alex Brown, drummer Eric Doob, bassist Zach Brown, percussionist Rolando Morales, violinist Andrei Matorin, oboist Tom Christensen, and harpist Riza Printup, along with a full string ensemble. A free pre-concert discussion will take place at 7pm each night in the Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio, located in the Irene Diamond Education Center.
