Tolentino was born on July 2, 1959. Having heard the great Charlie Parker at the age of 16, Tots decided that the saxophone was to be his chosen instrument. He studied flute under Prof. Eric Barcelo at the University of the Philippines Conservatory of Music in 1977 to 1978. He continued his studies on soprano, alto and tenor saxophones under Joseph Viola at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Graduated magna cum laude in 1982, Tolentino has been a leading session musician on the Philippine concert scene from 1984 to 1990.

"Finding a good clarinet reed in our climate here in the Philippines is frustrating, adjusting from time to time, break-in period, discoloration of the grain, unbalanced reed etc. With Légère, I only need one reed and not worry about the climate, altitude, or whatever. I’m rotating signature series, euro cut and classic for almost 4 years and I feel that the reeds I am using will last forever and I play a lot. The Légère are working great for me." - Ariel Sta. Ana

"This is one of the best reeds I have ever used, having a nice projection and a fixed sound. Plus, you can bring it anywhere, and it works in any season." - Hernan Manalastas
