ALBERT RIVERA: Re-Introduction
click to order




Born in Bronx, NY, Albert Rivera began his career as a classical musician at age ten with the Bronx Borough-wide Concert Band. At 12, he and his band mates were invited to appear at Carnegie Hall. He made three appearances there, the last of which was with the New York Pops. Bitten by the bug of ensemble music, he auditioned for the selective LaGuardia High School program and was accepted. At LaGuardia, he discovered jazz. "When I first heard Charlie Parker and Coltrane, I was speechless," he said. He wanted to join the school jazz band but there was no room for a bass clarinet, so he switched to sax. He was now thoroughly hooked. He and his classmates played at the United Nations, Lincoln Center, the Monterey Jazz Festival, and any and every street festival in New York. At 15, he received a scholarship to Litchfield Jazz Camp in Connecticut. There he had the good fortune to be under the guidance of the outstanding saxophonist Don Braden and have mentors like saxophonist Jimmy Greene and bassist Dave Santoro take an interest in him. He also had the luck to join a class of young people who would, in short order, begin making names for themselves and with whom he would later join forces.

Albert attended the New School University Jazz and Contemporary Music Program, from which he attended from 2001 until 2005 in which he studied with Reggie Workman, Chico Hamilton, Billy Harper, Rachel Z Charlie Persip and others. Since then he has played at venues like New York’s Sweet Rhythm, Zinc Bar, Cleopatra’s Needle, the River Room of Harlem and Dizzy’s Club Coco Cola at Lincoln Center. In 2005, He had the honor of being invited by his mentor and teacher at New School, the renowned pianist Junior Mance, to join him on the mainstage for a performance at The Litchfield Jazz Festival. He toured Canada later that year with his Quartet and New England and Southern States with his Trio. He appears often in Connecticut, at venues like Szechuan Tokyo in West Hartford, Firehouse 12 in New Haven and The Mezzanine and La Paloma in Hartford.

His teaching experience began and continues at Litchfield Jazz Camp where he is now on the faculty coaching both young and old players. In 2007 Albert started performing on an ongoing basis with drummer Winard Harper and his sextet. They met at the Litchfield Jazz Camp a number of years ago, in which Winard is also on the faculty.

Recently he has recorded and produced a new album “Re-Introduction” featuring master drummer Ralph Peterson, trumpeter Christian Scott, mentor and friend Jimmy Greene , guitarist Andrew Lipow, trumpeter Nick Roseboro, as well as the two original members his Quartet pianist Zaccai Curtis(recipient of the coveted Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism Arts Fellowship for composition as well as numerous ASCAP young Jazz Composers awards), and Luques Curtis, a 2007 Grammy winning bassist with his work on the Brian Lynch/ Eddie Palmieri album ‘Simpatico”

Ha!.. Hello Albert.. I think that is a great idea and I predict you will be very pleased that you do send the cd.. We are a CMJ jazz reporter and served by most all major labels, independent labels and promoters.. I understand with the new media and technology that people either know about us or they don't.. but our audience that has already found us is very.. very.. large in the states and internationally.. and grows exponentially. If you have any questions, just ask.. I am in the studio spinnin live... unlike much of our competition!.. drmike

An Upset Either Way: Steve Lehman And Wadada Leo Smith Triumph

Could anyone have predicted the first and second place finishers in this year's NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll? The poll master certainly didn't — and he voted for both of them.

The 2014 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

We had 140 jazz journalists weigh in on their favorite releases of the year. Here are their top overall picks, with top finishers in Latin jazz, vocal, debut and historical categories.
