An evening with world-class jazz flautist and Latin Grammy winner Nestor Torres and his ensemble, performing Latin jazz, pop and other genres. A favorite with South Florida audiences, the Puerto Rico-born Torres has been described as "an exotic mix of styles that takes the listener through American, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban jazz."
Nestor Torres is a Puerto Rican flautist. He studied at Berklee College of Music, Mannes School of Music in NYC and later at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. His career includes collaborations with Herbie Hancock, Tito Puente and Gloria Estefan, to mention a few. He has released 18 CDs and has earned 4 Latin Grammy nominations, 1 Latin Grammy Award, and a Grammy nomination. His playing incorporates Latin jazz, pop, straight-ahead jazz and classical styles. One of his most notable albums, Dances, Prayers & Meditations for Peace, is based on his improvised performances in various houses of worship near Ground Zero in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He was commissioned to compose the album’s title track, which he performed for the Dalai Lama during the spiritual leader’s visit to Miami.
