Cuban American jazz trumpeter, pianist, and composer, Arturo Sandoval has evolved into one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugelhorn. This Latin jazz pioneer and 10-time Grammy award winner delivers dynamic and vivacious live performances, captivating audiences with his lyrical improvisation and virtuoso capabilities.
A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz. Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn’t take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world. More info.
