Album Review

Trumpeter Arturo Sandoval steps out as a pianist on this aptly named recording, a collection of standards and originals. He is backed by bassist Dennis Marks and drummer Ernesto Simpson, with percussionist Samuel Torres and saxophonist Ed Calle appearing as guests on several tracks. Sandoval is quite a virtuoso at the keys, although at times showiness outweighs substance — a criticism that one could level at his trumpet playing as well. One can't help but be impressed, however, by his lightning-fast runs on Dennis Marks' samba "Departure" or his in-depth dissection of "All the Things You Are," not to mention his lyricism on Armando Manzanero's "Esta Tarde Villover" and the affecting minor-key original "Marianela Says Goodbye." ~ David R.

Are you kidding??!!

As if Arturo wasn't bad (in the best way) enough on the trumpet he gives us this! Enjoy....!!!!!

Amazing on Both

Heard him last night in concert. Can't believe anyone could be this gifted on both the trumpet and the piano. His playing on both was amazing. The compositions he created on both were expansive, yet seamless. Enjoy this gifted artist on either instrument.

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...
