Since 1980 Paquito resides in the United States. Since his arrival he received support from musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie, David Amram, Mario Bauza and Bruce Lundvall. His fame was consolidated with the publication of his first two solo albums, Paquito Blowin and Mariel, as well as an article published in Time magazine and his appearance on the television program of the CBS Sunday Morning.
In 1988 he joined the United Nations Orchestra founded by Dizzy Gillespie, taking over his address upon his death. Likewise, D'Rivera founded the groups Paquito D'Rivera Big Band and Paquito D'Rivera Quintet to play jazz, which has alternated with his other passion: chamber music. Among his most famous compositions are Great Danzón for the Rotterdam Philharmonic, premiered in 2002 at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, in Washington, Panamericana Suite, premiered in 2000 at the Lincoln Center in New York or Rivers, premiered by the New Jersey Chamber Music Society.

At the age of 8 he started studying music at the school of Fine Arts in his hometown, completing his musical training in Mexico City. In 1950 he composed his first melody entitled "Never in the world" and the following year he began his professional career as a pianist. Six years later, he began to work as musical director of the Mexican subsidiary of the record company CBS Internacional, soon after to become the pianist of artists such as Pedro Vargas, Lucho Gatica and Raphael.
In 1962 he obtained the fifth place in the Festival of Song in Mexico. In 1965 he won the first place in the Song Festival in Miami with the song Cuando estoy contigo. In 1967, animated by an executive of the Mexican subsidiary of the RCA label Víctor, he recorded his first album with his own songs, highlighting the romanticism that will characterize him later on.
