Luques started performing at a very young age. He had studied the piano, violin, cello, and tumbadoras before settling with the upright bass. Before he entered high school, he performed with the great Jesus Chucho Valdes on baby bass in a Manhattan club. Luques is a graduate of Berklee in Boston and has developed a reputation as one of the most versatile bass players. Along with his Insight commitments, he is performing world wide with the Donald Harrison Quintet, The Ralph Peterson Sextet, Gary Burtons Quintet, and the Christian Scott group. He has studied with great bassists such as Dave Santoro, Andy Gonzalez, Carlos Del Puerto, John Lockwood, Ron Mahdee, Mickey Bass and Volkan Orhan. Luques is currently the bass player for Gary Burton's newest incarnation of the Generations band, and both his playing and composing is featured on group's crticially-acclaimed CD, "Next Generation."
