Cuban saxist Paquito D’Rivera was one of the founding members of the jazz-rock supergroup Irakeré, but he learned how to be a first-class cutup from his mentor, Dizzy Gillespie. D’Rivera’s versatility has lately been manifest in his classical composition; in tonight's installment of the WBGO Jazz Series, he and his sextet put a Latin twist on music by Bach, Mozart and many others.
