Irving Flores is an accomplished pianist, composer, arranger and music producer. Born in Veracruz, Mexico, Flores began his music studies at age 6 with organ. His father, Irving Flores Sr., was with the famed Orchestra Tampico, and it was from him, that young Irving began to learn saxophone and arranging. On one occasion, the Orchestra was surprised to discover that one of their arrangements was actually the work of the younger Irving Flores. While a teenager, Irving moved to Mexico City, switched to piano developing as a composer and arranger.

During the 1990’s, Flores reputation as a great pianist and arranger began to grow. He was chosen to be pianist and musical director by some of the greatest performers in Latin America:   Armando Manzanero, Luis Demetrio, Vincente Garrido, Willie Colon, Tania Libertad, Eugenia Leon and Paullina Rubio.  He has toured Europe, the USA, Central and South America performing, arranging and directing for TV, Radio and Concerts. 

In 1995, he received a sponsorship with Yamaha to give clinics and workshops throughout Mexico, later earning an Emmy Award for his work on the music video “All Together”, featuring some of Mexico’s greatest Jazz artists.

Currently he is is playing in the Federal Jazz Project with Gilbert Castellanos, RIchard Montoya and Sam Woodhouse at the Lyceum Theater. He is currently working on his new CD, American Influence.
