The ensemble is excited to present guest trombonist Francisco Torres for a very special evening of music! Mr. Torres is perhaps best known as the long-time musical director, arranger and trombonist for the Grammy-winning Poncho Sanchez Latin Jazz Band. Through his work with Poncho and others, he helped to pioneer the unique and instantly identifiable 'West Coast Latin Jazz' sound.

Don't miss this special collaboration! The music is guaranteed to make you want to jump out of your seat. The group will be performing several of his compositions and arrangements, all with Mr. Torres at the helm! The selected repertoire will showcase the full range of his prowess in the Jazz and Latin musical idioms. We'll be playing a few classics too, for those who have heard Mr. Torres before.

Mr. Torres has countless recordings, composing and arranging credits, not only Latin Jazz, but traditional Jazz and classical music as well. He has recorded or performed with jazz legends Arturo Sandoval, Joey Defrancesco, Natalie Cole, Doc Severinsen, Terence Blanchard, as well as Santana, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Lopez, Johnny Mathis and many others. In the commercial world, he has appeared with different artists on the Tonight Show, Saturday Night Live, the Late Late Show, and Jimmy Kimmel.
