The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Diego Rivera

Air Date: 4/10/2022

Tenor saxophonist Diego Rivera has been busy lately. With two new CDs just released, it seems his music is everywhere. 

His new release Mestizo is his fifth as a leader, and it features a solid trio with Art Hirahara (piano), Boris Kozlov (bass), and Rudy Royston on drums, plus Alex Sipiagin's trumpet as the second horn in this quintet. During the second hour of the show we'll hear Mr. Rivera's emotional original song, The Rose Window, with Mr. Sipiagin on the flugelhorn.

Opening the second hour, we have the other release on which Mr. Rivera appears, called Blue Moods - Myth and Wisdom. This CD is a tribute to the late bassist Charles Mingus. We hear Mr. Mingus' instantly recognizable tune, Peggy's Blue Skylight.

More New Material

Pianist Joe Alterman has a new release, The Upside of Down, and it continues his engaging sound. Also new is a release from trumpeter Joe Magnarelli, which kicks off the show.

I have been enjoying the new release from vocalist Yolanda Flores, as well as Canadian saxophonist Tom Keenlyside.

Thanks so much for tuning in to the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
