Arturo Sandoval
Date: Sunday, March 4, 2012 -

Centre for the Arts, Brock University presents Arturo Sandoval - A Tribute to my Friend Dizzy Gillespie “Sandoval's playing is unabashedly spectacular, yet he uses his technique with dramatic finesse.” (The New York Times) Cuban-born trumpeter Arturo Sandoval was deeply influenced by the music of Gillespie and was actually discovered by Dizzy on his 1977 tour through Cuba. Gillespie was also the first bebop jazz musician to develop Afro-Cuban rhythms and melodies into jazz. In this concert, multiple GRAMMY-winning trumpeter Arturo Sandoval explores the music of Dizzy Gillespie from songs like “Manteca” and “Tin Tin Deo” to great bebop classics like “Salt Peanuts” and “Night in Tunisia.” As one of the world’s best and as a former protégé, collaborator and friend of Gillespie’s, Sandoval is the only artist with the chops, musical prowess and high-powered notes to properly pay tribute to the incomparable Dizzy, one of the very best trumpeters that ever played.
