Arturo Sandoval is the best trumpet player I have ever heard. His music is superb, somehow he manages to acquire absolutely stellar bands to play with, and he plays some of the best Latin music ever. He himself is from Cuba, and he is known as Dizzy Gillespie's protégé. So his music ends up being an almost perfect blend of bebop and Cuban big band music. It's groovy, rhythmic, and utterly tasty. Mmmm... Arturo Sandoval.
