Arturo Sandoval Arturo Sandoval trumpet


Cuban-born trumpet virtuoso Arturo Sandoval came to prominence in the 1970s with Irakere, an electrifying band he co-founded with Chucho Valdés and Paquito D’Rivera. A protégé of bebop giant Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval has since become one of the world’s most prominent jazz musicians with 10 Grammy Awards and numerous other honors to his credit. The 2012 Concord release, Dear Diz (Every Day I Think Of You), is in tribute to Gillespie’s towering influence, as is Arturo’s new book, Dizzy Gillespie: The Man Who Changed My Life. Sandoval has collaborated with music icons from Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett to Stan Getz, Woody Herman, Dave Grusin, John Williams and many more. Amazingly, he is an accomplished classical musician as well, having performed with the London Symphony Orchestra and others around the globe. An HBO movie starring Andy Garcia, For Love or Country, documented Sandoval’s phenomenal life story and Gillespie’s importance in helping him leave Cuba. Everything comes full circle with this concert, as Dizzy also played a key role in Stanford Jazz Workshop history....
