The Bobby Torres Ensemble plays at the Jazz Station in Eugene featuring Julana Torres (emotional and expressive vocalist fluent in Spanish and English), Dan Gaynor (talented and creative jazz musician who can carry a tight Latin montuno underneath his tasty piano licks), Al Criado (delivers the real deal with an authentic-fat-Latin Bass), Mark Griffith (sets the steady and intricate driving beats on the drum set), Bobby Torres (fans the flames of the Latin fire on the congas and percussion).
The Bobby Torres Ensemble features musical talent of the highest caliber in Portland to explore the many musical inflections of Latin Jazz. Bobby’s music is a toe tapping fusion of American and Latin standards arranged with churning and richly ornamented musical grooves. Driving Afro-Cuban rhythms boost this inspired blend of Latin, Jazz, Rock-n-Roll to create Bobby Torres’ signature sound. The Oregonian describes the Bobby Torres Ensemble as “Latin jazz with enough flavor and spice to satisfy your body and soul’s need for rhythmic harmony.”
