Carlos Jimenez Biography 

Carlos Jimenez is an extraordinary flute player and vocalist, as well as composer and bandleader of Jazz, Latin Jazz and Salsa. 

Born in New York, his family moved to 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, which he studied under Professor Pablo Leon at Francisco Zayas Santana High School. 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.

Carlos returned to New York to pursue his dream of becoming a jazz flutist. He began studying classical flute at the Music Conservatory of Westchester, New York before expanding his repertoire to include jazz, studying privately with master musicians. A few years later, he studied Jazz harmony and voicing with master pianist, Michael Longo. 
 

To date, Carlos has recorded nine albums of his own compositions and arrangements.
