Album Review

Very Best of Arturo Sandoval contains 11 well-chosen tracks taken from the Cuban jazz trumpeter, focusing on his '90s recordings for the GRP label. The majority of these tracks are Sandoval originals that show off his technical ability and agile virtuosity, especially on "The Latin Trane," "A Mis Abuelos," and his intimate use of a mute on the laid-back, bluesy "It Never Gets Old." Also exceptional are Sandoval's takes on Clifford Brown's "Daahoud" and Dizzy Gillespie's "Be-Bop." Collectors will already have all this material, but the novice will find this disc to be a useful introduction to Sandoval.

Customer Reviews

GO Arturo!!!

Other than "I Left this space for You" every song in this album is jammin'!!! But if you are too cheap to buy the entire album definately look at "The Latin Train" "Be-Bop" and "A La P. P." All in all, this is a spectacular album!!!

The Very Best of Arturo Sondoval

I am a trumpet player my self and have heard it all. This album and the performances are incomparable to any living trumpet player. Amazing skills of Mr. Sondoval himself as well as the entire band. I would get them all.

Get ready to pass out from adrenalin rush!

The cut "A Mis Abuelos" will melt your skull. If you like crisp, brilliant, big-band extreme ... if you like drum corps performances that send audiences into wild riotous frenzies ... if you like trumpet virtuosity which propels the instrument into the realm of illegal technique ... THEN YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM - one continuous orgasm.

A blazing, technically flawless trumpeter from Cuba, Arturo Sandoval has been dazzling audiences all over the world with his supercharged tone and bop-flavored flurries way up in the trumpet's highest register. In slower numbers, he sports a golden, mellow tone on the flügelhorn, marked with a sure, subtle sense of swing. Apparently he is capable of playing anything, proving it more than once by tackling classical repertoire as well as jazz in the same concert, and he has enough curiosity to search...
