On Sunday, February 23rd at 3 p.m. the series resumes with Michigan’s own Diego Rivera, a saxophonist known for his muscular tone and a composer/bandleader known for a unique blend of straight-ahead mainstream jazz fused with music inspired by his Latino background and heritage. He currently holds a tenured appointment as Associate Professor of Jazz Saxophone at Michigan State University where he also serves as Associate Director of Jazz Studies.  Rivera’s new recording, “Connections” on www.posi-tone.com records, is introducing this Ann Arbor native to a worldwide audience.
