Arturo Sandoval

750 E Shaw Lane, East Lansing, MI 48824
One of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, Arturo Sandoval is one of the most prodigious trumpeters of our time, and his spot in the jazz pantheon is assured. More than anything, the nine-time Grammy-winning, crowd- pleasing artist has forged his own bold synthesis of bebop and Cuban styles. Dizzy Gillespie helped spread Sandoval’s reputation by showcasing his chops in the United Nations Orchestra. Sandoval’s latest Concord release, Dear Diz (Every Day I Think of You), pays tribute to his mentor, showcasing the legend’s greatest compositions. When not leading his sizzling jazz combo, Sandoval is performing with the finest symphony orchestras around the world. Whenever he picks up his horn, fireworks soon follow.
