“This astonishing trumpeter, pianist and composer has inspired audiences in every corner of the world and awakened a new generation of great performers,” said President Barack Obama of the legendary jazz musician Arturo Sandoval. The Cuban native’s decade-spanning career has earned him 10 Grammy Awards, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and countless other accolades for his musicianship and humanitarian efforts. Sandoval was a protégé of jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and is also recognized as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer. He’s recorded with many of the world’s greatest performers, from Frank Sinatra and Josh Groban to Rod Steward and Alicia Keys. He was even portrayed by acclaimed film actor Andy Garcia in the 2000 HBO biopic For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story.
