Timucua Arts Foundation to Present Latin Jazz Nights Series Including Nestor Torres Show

Timucua Arts Foundation Orlando

Timucua Arts Foundation has announced the return of its Latin Jazz Nights series at Orlando’s one-of-a-kind Timucua White House, featuring the return of Latin Grammy Award-winning flute player Nestor Torres.

The Latin Jazz Nights series kicks off on February 4 with the debut of Timucua’s own Latin Big Band, featuring Orlando’s top-tier players for an all-Latin program. The evening will include selections by Grammy Award-winning composer and bandleader Michel Camilo; Latin Jazz sensation Arturo Sandoval; and Nestor Torres, who will also make an appearance.

Speaking of Nestor Torres, the four-time Latin Grammy nominee and 2001 winner will return to Timucua on February 8 for his own show. The artist sold out his last Timucua show, so don’t wait to get tickets for this one.

Timucua’s second Latin Jazz Nights series concludes with a performance on February 24 by the Gabriel Hernandez Trio. One of the most important exponents of the Cuban piano jazz style, Hernandez is a purveyor of world-class Latin music with a strong jazz flavor. His trio is rounded out by composer, producer, and educator Mauricio J. Rodriguez on bass, and Dimas Sanchez—whose style encompasses salsa, samba, bossa nova, Afro-Cuban and world music—on drums and percussion.

“Orlando has a strong Latin community,” says Benoit Glazer, founder of Timucua Arts. “It deserves the best in Latin culture, and we want to be the ones to provide it, in partnership with the entire Central Florida Latin community.”
