Bobby Torres: 
“Latin jazz with enough flavor and spice to satisfy your body and soul's need for rhythmic harmony.” Oregonian

Description of the Ensemble: In 1994 Bobby formed his own Latin jazz group – the Bobby Torres Ensemble featuring Latin polyrhythms, tasty piano licks, a pulsating Latin bass, sizzling horns, and vocalists. The Bobby Torres Ensemble includes 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 Latin grooves richly ornamented with jazz inflections. The Ensemble has opened for Tito Puente and Poncho Sanchez. And, the Ensemble has been host to such stars as Luis Conte, Orestes Vilato, Alex Acuna, Claudia Lennear, Nancy King, Karla Harris and featured almost the entire Tedeschi Trucks Band during the Ensemble’s Waterfront Blues Festival performance in 2016. The ensemble will be performing new songs from their upcoming CD. 

Description: This benefit music series will feature Portland's top Soul, Latin & Jazz bands.

During the shows, we will spotlight positive tangible commentary from community activists, select nonprofits, and social equality advocates sharing ideas and strategies to unite our divided country.
