Growing up in the New York City area Felipe Borrero was accustomed to hearing Jazz music from radio stations as well as Salsa music from his Puerto Rican neighborhood in Brooklyn. As a young boy, he watched the holiday parades in New York City and was drawn to the trumpets and trombones proclaiming their presence, hearing them echo off the walls of the buildings. He thought then on what an ideal sound and declaration of holiday and celebration. Felipe was then introduced to Jazz, Latin Jazz, Cha Cha’s, Bolero’s and Salsa a powerful spiritual and musical awakening for him. Sharing the stage with such notables as guitar legend Carlos Santana, Los Van Van, Cubanisimo, Trombone Shorty, and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band added to his great journey and dream come true. He has worked in Austin, TX, the Music Capital of the World with several popular ensembles: The Brew, Kiko y La Banda, Rey Arteaga w/Son y No Son, and Mambo Blue. He is also founder/manager/player with the following projects: Big Band Tejano, Trio 2 to 1, Salsa Amistad, Trio4mas and Tiburon.
Felipe is a twotime Latin Grammy award winner along with 5 additional nominations. He was also honored and awarded entry into the Idolos del Barrio Music Hall of Fame in Austin, TX in 2012. There over 200 recordings to his credit of which he’s played trumpet,
