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.
