Steve Turre, Elio Villafranca, Chembo Corniel, Joshua Ramos, Yuri Hevia and Néstor Torres take the stage as one unit to render an evening of brilliant music! The ensemble has performed to sold out crowds and packed houses all over the country. This "super band" features no leader; the participants share the spotlight and showcase each other!
Trombonist, Shell Master and SNL band veteran, Steve Turre has consistently won both the Readers' and Critics' polls in JazzTimes, Downbeat, and Jazziz for Best Trombone and for Best Miscellaneous Instrumentalist (shells). Flutist, Néstor Torres has recorded 13 CD’s to date. His 5th and 7th records, Treasure of the Heart and My Latin Soul, were nominated for a Latin Grammy and his production This Side Of Paradise won the Latin Grammy award in the Pop instrumental category in 2001. Conga-playing Chembo Corniel divides his performance time between his two musical loves: Latin jazz and "old-fashioned salsa that swings." He made waves this year garnering a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album. To round out the group, pianist, Elio Villafranca, bassist, Joshua Ramos and drummer, Yuri Hevia return to anchor the rhythm section. Combined, these talented musicians have played with an enormous range of greats including Dizzy Gillespie, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Candido, Art Blakey, Grover Washington, Max Roach, Paquito D'Rivera, Paul Simon and Dionne Warwick just to name a few. M.F. Production's Latin Jazz All Stars is a musical extravaganza that is sure to bring any audience to their feet!
