Ten-time GRAMMY Award winner Arturo Sandoval is fluent in at least four musical languages. He can burn through an Afro-Cuban groove, tear up a bebop tune, soar over a Mozart concerto, and soothe you with a luscious ballad, all with equal power and grace. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval is one of the world’s most revered guardians of jazz trumpet and flugelhorn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist, and composer.

“Born into poverty in Cuba and held back by his government, he risked everything to share his gifts with the world. In the decades since, this astonishing trumpeter, pianist, and composer has inspired audiences in every corner of the world and awakened a new generation of great performers. He remains one of the best ever to play.”
