General Information
Por la Rivera de Paquito con el duo Veleta Roja
Flute Piano Duo, Carlos Cano and Hernan Milla Featuring Paquito D’Rivera
Paquito D'Rivera is a mighty river that runs through much of the American territory, absorbing and distilling everything which is dragged in its way. Navigating its course reveals the sublime and personal style of this unique artist, his legacy and influences. Its permanent recognition to figures such as Dizzie Gillespie, Chucho Valdés, Toots, Piazzolla, Lecuona, Lauro and Goodman, serves as inspiration to pay tribute to his art.
In the words of Paquito, “This album is also a thank you to our families, to all the people who make our environment a space of joys and dreams and our musician friends that nourish the flow of this rivera. To all of you for making this rivera a river: thank you “

Carlos Cano & Hernán Milla

"Good musical arrangement is as important as recomposing", the great Duke Ellington once said wisely whose wonderful music has been interpreted in multiple ways by millions of artists around the world. The greatest satisfaction that a composer can feel is to hear his original pieces arranged to the personal style of other performers, who are really bearing the musical art to the general public. Considering that there are so many valuable composers in the contemporary scene, it is a real honor that Carlitos, Hernan and this group of talented young musicians have dedicated their time to orchestrate and record these compositions which are so endearing, and "cuddle" among them the compositions form Dizzy and Chucho, two key people in my career, said Paquito D´Rivera, 9 April Protected content .
