Arturo Sandoval

by Metroland Staff on April 4, 2013


It’s all about that soaring high note. And Cuban-born trumpeter Arturo Sandoval learned from the best. A protégé of bebop great Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval has become one of the most accomplished technicians of his instrument, branching out from his roots in jazz to perform classical music as well as collaborations with pop stars like Celine Dion, Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys. He even got the made-for-TV movie treatment in 2000 when Andy Garcia played Sandoval in For Love or Country. Last year’s Dear Diz (Every Day I Think of You) is Sandoval’s paean to his mentor.
