Panamericana Suite

Winner of two Latin GRAMMY® Awards in two categories, for "Best Latin Jazz Album" and "Best Classical Contemporary Composition."

Panamericana under the MCG Jazz LabelRecorded live at Pittsburgh’s Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild for MCG Jazz, Panamericana Suite takes its name from a piece commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center that D’Rivera premiered in 2000. A stunning cultural synthesis encompassing North, Central, and South America leavened with a Caribbean rhythmic sensibility, the project reflects D’Rivera’s embracing musical vision.

The new CD boasts an all-star international cast, with Pedro Martinez (batas, timbales, vocals), Pernell Saturnino (percussion), Oscar Stagnaro (bass), and Mark Walker (Percussion) comprising the supple rhythm section.
