Album Notes
One of the best trombone players in the Latin-jazz community of the 1990s, Juan Pablo Torres provided a crucial role in recordings by Paquito D'Rivera, Charles Aznavour and Gilberto Santa Rosa. In addition, the Cuban recorded at least two dozen LPs of his own while sitting in with others; their success led to a contract with Sony Tropijazz, beginning with 1995's Trombone Man, which also featured D'Rivera and pianist Hilton Ruiz. Pepper Trombone followed in early 1997, and three years later Torres resurfaced with Son Que Chevere. In 2001 he came up with Cuba Swings! followed in 2002 by Como Pica!
Regarded as the primary heir of the historical Cuban trombone triumvirate comprised of Generoso "El Tojo" Jiménez, Leopoldo "Pucho" Escalante, and the unfairly forgotten professor Antonio Linares, Juan Pablo Torres has become the most influential post-1959 Cuban trombonist, as documented in a commentary offered by Leonardo Acosta about the impact made in Havana by Emiliano Salvador's favorite homebody from Puerto Padre over three decades ago, when he shared the Orquesta de Música Moderna's jazz trombone solos with none other than the mischievous Pucho (also known as "El Cabezón," or Bighead): "Torres' presence was in harmony with the growing prosperity of the trombone in Cuban music, and it could be stated that more front-line trombonists have appeared in this country in the years to follow than in the previous three decades."
