Album Review

Trumpeter Arturo Sandoval's 2012 tribute to legendary jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, Dear Diz (Every Day I Think of You) is a big-band Latin and Afro-Cuban jazz tour de force. Showcasing Sandoval's long-storied titan bop trumpet chops, Dear Diz frames the Cuban-born virtuoso with layered big-band arrangements on many of Gillespie's best-known compositions. Produced by Gregg Field and Sandoval, the album also features a bevy of name jazz musicians, including Hammond B-3 master Joey DeFrancesco, vibraphonist Gary Burton, tenor saxophonist Bob Mintzer, clarinetist Eddie Daniels, and many more. Included here, among others, are such Gillespie songs as "Salt Peanuts!," "Birks Works," "Con Alma," and, of course, Gillespie's trademark theme, "A Night in Tunisia." Gillespie was Sandoval's biggest musical influence and, after the two met during Gillespie's tour of Cuba in 1977, he became one of Sandoval's most ardent champions, mentors, and friends. In that sense, Dear Diz is clearly a labor of love, a sentiment that permeates this joyously exuberant album.

Customer Reviews

A Musician Who Plays the Trumpet

Arturo Sandoval isn't a trumpet player. He's a musician who plays the trumpet. And piano. And timbales. And sings. This album in tribute to the man who put the "bop" in "bebop" is excellent. The musicianship from all the players is off the charts. What a group! I'm sure everyone who hears this will be reminded of what an amazing gift music is.

Awesome Great Sound !!

This is the kind of Album that you find something new every time you play it . One of the best Big Band arrangements that I ever heard. Great Work & a well deserved tribute to Dizzy !!!

Awesome Tribute

Arturo Sandoval is now a legend in his own right and to hear this disc paying homage to Dizzy highlights his love for the man. Obviously not only did Diz help him get to the States, but they were friends. A fitting tribute indeed.

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...
