Nestor Torres: Description

Born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, Nestor Torres moved to New York City to study classical and jazz flute at the Mannes School of Music, Jazz at Berklee College of Music, and New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. During that time, Nestor learned to improvise in the Charanga Cuban Dance Music style, which proved to be an incredible influence in producing melodic and danceable music. Influenced by such flute legends as Jean-Pierre Rampal, Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, Herbie Mann, and Hubert Laws, award-winning flutist Nestor Torres is an incomparable musical innovator. Nestor has recorded 18 solo albums since 1989, winning one Latin Grammy Award, four Latin Grammy nominations, and one Grammy nomination. He has collaborated with dozens of incredibly diverse artists including Gloria Estefan, Kenny Loggins, Paquito D’Rivera, Dave Matthews, Tito Puente, Herbie Hancock, and Arturo Sandoval. Nestor's concerts with the Cleveland, Singapore, and New World symphonies, among others, are a testimony to an exceptional artist who continues to reach out to share his visionary musical spirit.
