Carlos Jimenez Biography 

Carlos Jimenez is an extraordinary flute player and vocalist, as well as composer and band leader of jazz, Latin jazz and salsa.

Born in Yonkers, New York, his family moved to Villaba, Puerto Rico when he was six years old. It was there that his musical training began. From a young age, Carlos had an aptitude for percussion and played timbales, bongos and congas. His first lyrical instrument was trumpet. Carlos soon changed his instrument to flute, feeling inspired listening to the music of Mongo Santamaria and how he utilized the flute in his arrangements. He performed with his school’s big band throughout the Island. Thus began his early days as a flutist and his passion for the instrument.

Carlos returned to New York as a young adult to pursue his dream of becoming a jazz flutist. He began studying classical flute at the Music Conservatory of Westchester before expanding his repertoire to include jazz.
 

To date, Carlos has recorded eight albums of his own compositions as well as his own arrangements of jazz and Latin music classics. As in a fantastic dream come true, some of the very musicians who inspired him in his youth have participated in these recordings. A ninth album will be released worldwide on July 25th, 2022 and physical copies are available now only on his website:
