There will be a Latin flavor to the next Hot & Cool: Jazz at the Brubeck Room concert as the Paquito D\u2019Rivera Ensemble takes the stage at Wilton Library on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Winner of fourteen Grammy Awards in both jazz and classical categories, he is celebrated both for his artistry in Latin jazz and his achievements as a classical composer and performer.

Born in Havana, D\u2019Rivera performed at age 10 with the National Theater Orchestra and by age 17 was a featured clarinet and saxophone soloist with the Cuban National Symphony. He was a founding member of the innovative Grammy-winning musical ensemble Irakere and the United Nation Orchestra, a 15-piece ensemble organized by Dizzy Gillespie to showcase the fusion of Latin and Caribbean influences with jazz. D\u2019Rivera has recorded more than 30 solo albums and has garnered numerous awards including the National Medal of the Arts, the Living Jazz Legend Award from the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and a Lifetime Achievement Award from Carnegie Hall for his contribution to Latin music. He also is the author of three books \u2013 My Sax Life, Letters to Yeyito, and a novel, Oh, La Habana. The first two have been translated into English and will be available for purchase and signing after the concert.
