Travis Rogers, Jr., posted a wonderful review on JazzTimes.com of Dia y Medio, a joint venture of Paquito D’Rivera and Paraguayan guitarist Berta Rojas.
"To have a musician of D’Rivera’s performing and composing skills alongside Rojas’ dedication to her homeland makes for a moving and enlightening journey into Paraguay. Hers is the old love of home and his is the new love of a captivated traveler."
