Albert Rivera QuartetApril 24, 2015
Contemporary, smooth, and eclectic, Albert Rivera is “a modern Jazz Messenger” with one of the most exciting and sought-after saxophone sounds in today’s Jazz scene. His first album, Re-Introduction, was warmly embraced by critics, who call Albert and his two band mates, Luques and Zaccai Curtis, “three young artists who are part of the next wave in this jazz ritual.”
Rivera’s musical journey includes playing at world-renown venues like the Litchfield Jazz Camp and Festival in Connecticut, where he is also the Director of Operations for the Jazz Camp and the New School University Jazz and Contemporary Music Program. He has toured throughout North America with his own Trio and Quartet, including playing at several New York venues like Smalls Jazz Club, Sweet Rhythm, Zinc Bar, Cleopatra’s Needle, Nyorican Poets Cafe and the River Room of Harlem.
This concert is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Spring Jazz Series, which is hosted in the Palace Poli Club.
