Jazz at MOCA x Nestor Torres

Fri Sep 28, 2018

Standing on the shoulders of Jazz flute giants of Jazz Flute, Latin Grammy Award winning Nestor Torres’ rhythmic and mellifluous, flute sound remains apart in a class all by itself. His 14 recording as a soloist; 4 Latin Grammy nominations, one Grammy nomination and one Latin Grammy Award; collaborations with artists such as Gloria Estefan, Herbie Hancock, Paquito D’ Rivera and Arturo Sandoval; as well as his performances with the New World Symphony Orchestra among many others are testament to his  remarkable journey. Torres’ compositions ‘Successors’, Marta y Maria and Disarmament Suite are variation of Torres’ multi-cultural fusion sounds as expressions of today’s world. Then again, Nestor’s music has always been about that: a Crossover fusion of Latin, Classical, Jazz and Pop sounds. Rich and engaging, complex and exuberant, profound yet accessible.

“Top-notch in every way. Highly recommended….Perfect.” – JazzReview.com

“Nestor combines the refreshing sounds of his flute with Latin beats, pop and spirituality. It is a creative and courageous approach that merits attention.” – Place Jazz Newsletter
