Born in Puerto Rico in 1957, Néstor Torres began learning the flute at the age of 12. Moving with his family to New York when he was 18, he studied jazz and classical music at the Mannes College of Music in New York and the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Following in the wake of over fifteen albums, including the Grammy and Latin Grammy-nominated Nouveau Latino, released in 2008, Jazz Flute Traditions is an homage to early pioneers including some legendary jazz flautists.

Nestor Torres is a force to be reckoned with. Anyone who loves jazz flute or is a serious student of the jazz flute repertoire should find his Jazz Flute Traditions a thoroughly enjoyable experience and a must have. Torres is a remarkable player and this ‘live’ recording just reinforces the excitement this fine musician can generate on his instrument. This is undeniably a beautiful album executed by a true virtuoso of the flute and one who, like his contemporary Hubert Laws, has made the instrument one of mesmeric attraction. From the irresistible opener "Swingin' Shepherds Blues," through Neal Hefti's famous "Cute" to the Latin-esque finale "Miami Beach Rhumba," every number on this record possesses its own unique charm and in doing so makes this welcome release very addictive.
