Imani Winds perform Paquito D'Rivera

Thursday, September 16, 2010

In over a decade, the Imani Winds have expanded the woodwind quintet repertoire well beyond its traditional roots to encompass jazz, Latin, and crossover works. For their latest album, Terra Incognita, the quintet tackles works by three preeminent jazz composers: Jason Moran, Paquito D’Rivera and Wayne Shorter.

The quintet appeared on WNYC's Soundcheck recently to perform a selection from Kites by Cuban composer, clarinetist and saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera.

Imani Winds dance and prance in your ears with unabashed freshness and joy. They enhance the versatility of the wood winds with a flair you don't hear every day. They are brilliant musicians. Thanks WQXR for the revealing and enjoyable video of Imani Winds.
