Néstor Torres has recorded thirteen albums to date. His fifth and seventh records, Treasure of the Heart and My Latin Soul, were both nominated for a Latin Grammy, and his production of This Side of Paradise won the Latin Grammy in the Pop Instrumental category. 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, for Things I Wanted to Do.
Combined, these talented musicians have played with an enormous range of music greats, including Dizzy Gillespie, Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Candido, Art Blakey, Grover Washington, Max Roach, Paquito D’Rivera, Paul Simon, and Dionne Warwick.
