A legend called Arturo Sandoval (b. 1949)
Arturo Sandoval was born in November 1949, in Artemisa (Cuba). At the age of twelve he began to study trumpet classic, but very soon his musical tastes would lead him to jazz, despite the fact that I would never forget their origins, as evidenced by his recordings, since the start of the nineties, and their performances with the Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra of Leningrad or the Philharmonic Orchestra of Los Angeles.
