Arturo Sandoval – Best of Arturo Sandoval

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

I couldn’t find the album art for the compilation I have.

Arturo Sandoval is a beast of a trumpet player. Consider him the Latin version of Maynard Ferguson. If you want jazz, salsa, and latin music that screams, with interesting and complex rhythms, than look no further than Arturo Sandoval and a greatest hits compilation.

Like a lot of classical and jazz music, I discovered Arturo Sandoval while playing in jazz band. We played “A Mis Abuelos,” which remains my favorite Sandoval tune.

If you’re looking for something a little out of the way that you wouldn’t normally listen to, then these songs are fast and fun. Just listening to Sandoval’s range is mind-blowing. This album is a must for any trumpet player, and jazz enthusiasts would do well to listen to this beast of a trumpet player.
