About the Album

Standing on the shoulders of flute giants from worlds as diverse as Rampal & Galway in Classical Music; Richard Egues’ Cuban Charanga style; rocker Ian Anderson’s Jethro Tull; Herbie Mann and – most influential of all – Hubert Laws as pioneers of Jazz Flute, Latin Grammy® Award winning Nestor Torres’ rhythmic and mellifluous flute sound remains apart in a class all by itself. “Thank You, Willie” was produced/co-written by Multi-Grammy® & Emmy nominee Greg Manning whose credits include: Jonathan Butler, Gerald Albright, Brian McKnight, Deniece Williams, Kirk Whalum, Dave Koz, Herb Alpert and more. Nestor co-wrote “Thank You, Willie", which he dedicates to Willie Payne (a philanthropist, American success story, lover of Jazz, dear friend and co-founder of the San Diego Jazz Festival). Release date is January 17, 2022. Label: Nine-PM Records, Inc.
