Jazz trumpeter, pianist, and composer, Arturo Sandoval can burn through an Afro-Cuban groove, tear up a bebop tune, soar over a Mozart concerto and sooth you with a luscious ballad—all with equal power and grace. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Cuban-born Arturo is one of the most celebrated artists of our day, winning 4 Grammy Awards, 6 Billboard Awards, and an Emmy Award. His versatility can be heard on recordings with everyone from Gillespie, Woody Herman, and Stan Getz to Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra, Rod Stewart, and Alicia Keys among many others.
“He’s one of the best. He has a very athletic style, but can play softly too. He’s got bull chops!”
- DIZZY GILLESPIE
