Arturo Sandoval

With his immense virtuosity, trumpeter Arturo Sandoval can play anything, and on this showcase for his voluminous talents he seems to. Specifically designed to pay tribute to the trumpeters that inspired this Cuban horn man, Trumpet Evolution moves in a chronological direction, touching on such influential players as Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke to Dizzy Gillespie (Sandoval's hero and mentor), Clifford Brown, and Miles Davis, even finding room to pay homage to the classical trumpeters Timofei Dokshizer and Maurice Andre. Sandoval has the chops and taste to pull this ambitious project off with panache, simultaneously giving props to his brass idols and calling attention to his own superb musicianship. William Pearl
