"A Wonderful Place to Play Music"
In summer 2010, legendary Cuban composer and saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera returned to the Moab Music Festival for the featured Western United States premiere of his work “Conversations with Cachao.” Salt Lake Tribune writer Celia R. Baker noted, “D'Rivera is pleased about returning to the Moab Music Festival, where he has performed several times…‘It's a wonderful place to play music, and I don't complain about the hot weather. I [was] born on a very hot island. The dryness is hard on reeds, but that's all right. Life is work,’ he said with a laugh. You have to do some work.’"
