About Arturo Sandoval

A man of many musical hats, Arturo Sandoval is much more than one of the most technically brilliant trumpeters alive. This protege of Dizzy Gillespie stepped out from under the bebop master’s long shadow years ago, and has compiled an impressive catalog of Latin jazz, classical trumpet work, original compositions, and solo piano recordings. His recording and film work has netted him 4 Grammy Awards, 6 Billboard Awards and an Emmy Award. The standard bearer for Latin music as well as trumpet playing, he has recently been seen on the Grammy Awards performing with pop star Justin Timberlake as well as on the Latin Billboard Awards with the gifted Alicia Keys, where he was awarded his 6th Billboard Award for “Best Latin Jazz Album”.

In the late 1970s Sandoval was a founding member of the Grammy Award-winning group Irakere, whose explosive mixture of jazz, classical, rock and traditional Cuban music was well received throughout the entertainment world. In 1981, he left Irakere to form his own band, and was voted Cuba’s Best Instrumentalist from 1982 to 1990. In 1990 he relocated to Miami, and currently resides there while teaching at Florida International University. Very active in education, he teaches clinics and classes around the country, and Hal Leonard Publishing has released several Arturo Sandoval method books with instructional CDs.

“a surefire crowd-pleaser with charisma and charm to match his musical talent. – San Jose Merury News
