About Brass Playing Concepts

The Work

The art of the brass musician is measured by the extent, the intensity and the quality of his mastery as well as the influence of his personality. The phenomenal mastery of Arturo Sandoval has aroused the admiration, respect and even the incredulity of audiences, of his colleagues and of young students. Not a few imagine that there must be sorne kind of special trick involved here ...

The approach proposed here by Arturo Sandoval - as perhaps that of every artist who has made his way to success and can verbalize his experience - may appear simple. In fact, it is. As simple as is the solution to every problem, once it is found...

Arturo Sandoval was born November 6th,1949 in Artemis, province of Havanna, Cuba. At the age of fifteen he entered the Cuban National School of the Arts where he studied classical trumpet. In 1965 he met the great Russian trumpet player Timofey Dokshidser and was deeply impressed by his artistry. From 1974 to 1980 he played with the famous Cuban Irakere big band. Then he created his own band, started to travel to foreign countries, getting finally the international recognition he deserved. In 1990 he left Cuba for good and settled in the USA. He has since toured all over the world, recording many CDs and his fame is growing constantly. His phenomenal virtuoso trumpet playing and his great talent as a pianist and film music composer are admired worldwide by classical and jazz musicians.
