Nestor Torres comes to MOCA September 28
Friday September 28 from 8:00 to 9:30 PM: The City of North Miami presents Jazz at MOCA, featuring the Nestor Torres Jazz Ensemble in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. The FREE concert will be in front of the North Miami police station behind MOCA at 700 NE 124 Street.
Standing on the shoulders of flute giants from worlds as diverse as Rampal & Galway in Classical Music; Richard Egues’ Cuban Charanga style; rocker Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull; Herbie Mann and – most influential of all – Hubert Laws as pioneers of Jazz Flute, Latin Grammy Award winning Nestor Torres’ rhythmic and mellifluous flute sound remains apart in a class all by itself. His 14 recordings as a soloist; 4 Latin Grammy nominations, one Grammy nomination and one Latin Grammy Award; collaborations with diverse artists such as Gloria Estefan, Kenny Loggins, Dave Mathews, Herbie Hancock, Tito Puente, Michael Camilo, Paquito D’ Rivera and Arturo Sandoval; as well as performances with the Cleveland, Singapore, and New World Symphony Orchestras among many others, are testament to the remarkable journey of an Artist who continues to grow and enrich the lives of those who experience his talents.
“It is a rare occasion that I have to consult a Thesaurus to find enough superlatives to describe this flautists performance. I could say “incredible” and not be close. “Fantastic” an understatement. “Impressive” would have to be in headline type.”… Speaking of masters, Nestor Torres is a maestro, a professore, technically perfect, with a tone that is beyond belief; imagination and creativity pervade every solo.”
