Paquito D'Rivera: To Bird with Strings

One of D'Rivera's favorite albums is Charlie Parker's Bird with Strings, a definitive recording that combined Parker's emotional maturity and melodic mastery with romantic string arrangements. In this performance, D'Rivera exemplifies Jazz at Lincoln Center's commitment to presenting cherished masterpieces alongside new ideas; as he puts it, this is "To Bird with Strings" — a thoughtfully updated program that includes selections from the original Bird with Strings, unrecorded arrangements from the project, and new takes on Parker's work with Latin jazz legends like Machito and Chico O'Farrill. As demonstrated in D'Rivera's sold-out Bird with Strings concerts in 2013, this program puts D'Rivera's jaw-dropping solos on full display, thanks to expanded arrangements that highlight the improvisational prowess of D'Rivera and his fellow ensemble members.

Tickets are available only to current Columbia students, faculty, and staff, and can be purchased both online and in person at the TIC in Lerner Hall lobby.
