Arturo Sandoval at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Herbst Theatre

2 I might go!

Add to Calendar 2012-12-01 2012-12-01 35 Arturo Sandoval at San Francisco Jazz Festival at Herbst Theatre If Arturo Sandoval were only the most prodigious Cuban trumpeter of his generation, given to gravity defying improvisational flights, his spot in the jazz pantheon would be assured. But the six-time Grammy winning musician isn’t content with sending rival horn players running for cover. More than anything, Sandoval is a crowd-pleasing artist who has forged his own bold synthesis of bebop and Cuban styles. Indeed, he played a central role in revolutionizing Cuban music as leader and founding member of Irakere, the most exciting band to come out of Cuba in the early 1970s. His trumpet hero Dizzy Gillespie helped spread Sandoval’s reputation by showcasing his awesome chops in the United Nations Orchestra. Sandoval’s latest Concord release, Dear Diz, Everyday I Think of You, pays tribute to his late mentor with a heartfelt showcase of the bebop legend’s greatest compositions. When he’s not leading his blazing jazz combo, Sandoval can be found performing with the finest symphony orchestras around the world. Whenever he picks up his horn, you can be assured that fireworks will soon follow. Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness Ave, false DD/MM/YYYY
