He has also made several recordings as a sideman with artists such as Paquito D' Rivera, Ed Simon, Dee Dee Bridgewater, J.P. Torres, Bebo Valdez, and Danilo Perez. Other highlights of Diego's career include his second place finish at the '97 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition, his appearance with Paquito D' Rivera Quintet in the documentary Calle 54 directed by Fernando Trueba; and a subsequent tour with Calle 54 All Star Band.
