Joan Torres's All Is Fused

Bassist and composer Joan Torres got into music before becoming a teenager. Throughout the years he grew as a musician and developed an interest for Jazz music. He has studied jazz with a list of great musicians like puerto rican legend Tony Batista (William Cepeda), Oscar Stagnaro (Paquito D’Rivera) and Matthew Garrison (son of John Coltrane’s bassist Jimmy Garrison). His ability was recognized by musical institutions like Berklee College of Music who offered him many scholarships to attend their summer programs and the college as a full­time student. He developed his musical skills by studying and performing a wide variety of music including Salsa, Rock, Reggae, Latin Jazz, Funk, Fusion, Jazz, Classical Choir music and even Brazilian Capoeira music.

After years of playing and sharing with other musicians and other projects he decided to start his own with some of the music he had written over the years. It can be said that these tunes synthesize a lot of his musical experiences and influences over the years. That’s how the group Joan Torres’s All is Fused was born. The group, featuring some of the most sought-after musicians in the local music scene, assembled and recorded the first album, titled “Before”, in January 10 and 11, 2012 at Playbach Studio in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The album was released in May 21, 2012 with the official release show taking place on July 5, 2012 at the local spot known as Il Jazz Club. This show was also the beginning of a small album release tour throughout July. Having acquired a following in the Puerto Rico area, they now invest some of their energy on getting their music beyond the island and into the world.

As of March 2013, Joan Torres's All is Fused have been nominated in two categories for the 12th Annual Independent Music Awards for their critically-acclaimed debut album "Before".
