Jazz it up

Emily Tabin, the executive director of the Westchester Jazz Orchestra and past subject of a WAG profile, has alerted us to the next show in the organization’s schedule.

And it sounds like a lively one.

Paquito D’Rivera, an 11-time Grammy-Award winning artist, will headline his group’s first concert at the Tarrytown Music Hall.

The clarinetist, saxophonist and composer will lead the orchestra in an evening of Afro-Cuban and South American jazz at 8 p.m. April 27.

If the name sounds familiar, it might be because D’Rivera, a native of Cuba, was composer-in-residence and a performer at Caramoor a few years’ back.

Gary Walker of WBGO-FM, the jazz radio station, will serve as the night’s emcee.

Reserved-seating tickets are $40; $35 for senior citizens and $15 for students.
