Panamericana Suite opens with a tune Paquito DâRivera wrote for the great Canadian saxophone and flute player, Moe Koffman, âWaltz for Moeâ maintains the sentiment of a jazz waltz while incorporating the Colombian/Venezuelan joropo rhythm for Colombian harpist Edmar Castanedaâs solo and a version of the Mazurka from Martinique for Andy Narellâs solo. Dizzy Gillespieâs classic composition âCon Almaâ is arranged by DâRiveraâs bassist, Oscar Stagnaro. This version draws on rhythms from Stagnaroâs homeland of Peru such as Festejo and Zamba Lando. Stagnaro provides the canvas for the band to truly explore the meaning of âcon almaâ â with soul. Argentinean trumpeter, Diego Urcola, steps in to arrange Roberto Panseraâs âPreludio No. 3.â Urcola effectively combines the voice of the Bandoneon with the saxophone and trumpet; staying true to the Tango yet allowing a unique vehicle for improvisation. âTojo,â written in honor of the great Cuban trombonist, Generoso âEl Tojoâ Jiménez, features DâRivera on alto saxophone, Urcola on trumpet, Narell on Steel Pans and Mark Walker on drums. The multi-instrumentalist, Dana Leong, sets aside his cello on this tune and plays trombone. âTojoâ moves from the Cuban rhythms of cha cha cha and bolero to Uruguayâs candombe. The title track, âPanamericana Suiteâ musically represents the concept of this project. Beginning with a stirring traditional Afro-Cuban chant and bata drumming of Pedro Martinez, this piece travels along a vast musical arc. The listener experiences styles and rhythms from countries throughout the Caribbean, Central and South America including milonga (Argentina), danzon, bembe and cha cha cha, cha cha lokua fun (Cuba), bossa (Brazil), reggae (Jamaica) and joropo (Colombia/Venezuela). As the title implies, DâRiveraâs composition âFiddle Dreamsâ was originally commissioned to be performed as a violin feature. In this version, DâRivera and his trio transform âFiddle Dreamsâ into âclarinet dreamsâ displaying their virtuosity as they seamlessly flow between Classical, Swing, baião and samba. DâRiveraâs arrangement of Carlos Franzettiâs âSerenadeâ artfully balances technical ability with the expressive lyricism characteristic of the danza style and ends in the energizing Cuban rhythm, timba. Panamericana Suite closes with âSong for Peace,â a poignant piece composed by DâRivera that brilliantly features Puerto Rican lyric soprano, Brenda Feliciano. Although truly classical in nature, âSong for Peaceâ displays undertones of the evocative Tango. This recording expresses the essence of Paquito DâRivera. From refined Classical compositions to swinging jazz, DâRivera takes the listener on a journey celebrating the multitude of Latin and World rhythms connecting them with the best of jazz and Classical traditions.
