Afro-Cuban groove, Bebop, Mozart or a luscious ballad?

Vivacious, talented and charismatic, Arturo Sandoval has traveled the world touting his own blend of infectious, mind-blowing jazz that has earned him Grammy® and Billboard Awards, an Emmy and thousands of fans the world over.

A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town on the outskirts of Havana, Cuba in 1949. He has since evolved into one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugelhorn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer.

He has performed with the likes of Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake, and Alicia Keys, and composed music for the HBO movie “For Love Or Country”, based on his own life. He is currently working on two new albums and a book chronicling his friendship with Dizzy Gillespie.
