Paquito d'Rivera has gotten a lot more interesting since he quit Irakere. The Chesky CD is a remarkable set: a danza for clarinet and guitar, Venezuelan waltzes, including one for solo clarinet, and another for acoustic guitar; more standard contemporary jazz fare; and a singularly mellow "Tico Tico." ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music, Rovi

The soul of the afro-cuban music, out of the limits. The most talented people together giving us a perfect gift. Perfection. More than a classic. A monument that will remain forever.
This is truly one of Paquito's best. Sandoval is supurb. Chucho Valdez's Claudia is one of my all time favorate ballads, and this arrangement is outstanding. Paquito plays clarinet with great virtuosity on Latin America Suite. Danilo Perez, Fareed Haque, David Finck and Mark Walker were perhaps Paquito's best ensamble. Check out the Havana Cafe cd also. I have more of Paquito on my iPos than any one else.
