A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, ARTURO SANDOVAL was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949. 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. 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. One of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, Sandoval has been seen by millions at the Oscars, the Grammy Awards, and the Billboard Awards.
Sandoval has been awarded 10 Grammy Awards, and nominated 19 times. He has also received 6 Billboard Awards and an Emmy Award. Arturo Sandoval’s newest CD, “Eternamente Manzanero” performs the music of revered Mexican romantic pianist/singer/songwriter, Armando Manzanero, a fresh, modern and pleasant take on his beautiful bolero music. His versatility can be heard on recordings with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Woody Shaw, Michel Legrand, Josh Groban, Tony Bennett, Bill Conti, and Stan Getz to Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra, Paul Anka, Rod Stewart and Alicia Keys amongst many others. He has performed with John Williams and the Boston Pops, as well as the Super Bowl with Tony Bennett and Patti LaBelle. He also performs regularly with leading symphony orchestras from around the world. His compositions can be heard in numerous movies including Dave Grusin’s soundtrack for “Havana”, “1001 to 1” starring Beau Bridges, “At Middleton” starring Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga, and more.
Arturo Sandoval’s struggles while in Cuba and since his defection have given him more energy and strength, urging him to accomplish and surpass his childhood dreams. Filled with a virtuoso capability, he desires nothing more than to share his gift with others who feel the same intense adoration for music as he does.
