Arturo Sandoval at The Cabot


A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, Arturo Sandoval was born in Artemisa, a small town in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, on November 6, 1949, just two years after Gillespie became the first musician to bring Latin influences into American Jazz. Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn’t take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world. He has since evolved into one of the world’s most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugelhorn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist, and composer.

Arturo Sandoval + Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio play The Cabot Theatre on Sunday, July 9. Tickets $28.50 – $58.50. Showtime 7 PM.
