Latin Percussionist, Wendell Rivera is one of the leading ambassadors of Latin Jazz, an invigorating jazz sound that incorporates Afro-Caribbean grooves with the free melodic and harmonic elements of progressive jazz. Rivera came into his own in 1996 with his debut, No Boundaries, on his own WPR Music label. Two years later, he released Portfolio under World Class Records. Portfolio drew critical acclaim and put him on the map as a bonafide leader.
Rivera performs frequently in high profile jazz festivals in Canada and around Western New York. In the year 2000, Rivera was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, an award that recognized his achievements and musical contributions.
