Band Bio: A classically trained artist, Arturo Sandoval was a renowned trumpeter in his homeland and a co-founder of the Grammy Award winning Cuban jazz supergroup Irakere. Since being granted political asylum in the U.S. in 1990, Sandoval has recorded several CDs, including a classical album, and has garnered 12 Grammy nominations and four Grammy awards. He also won an Emmy for Outstanding Musical Composition for his underscore to the 2000 HBO docudrama, "For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story," starring Andy Garcia. While the made-for-television film afforded Sandoval a higher profile, he was already acknowledged as one of jazz's foremost trumpeters. In 2001, he was awarded the ASCAP Founder's Award for his musical accomplishments as a trumpeter, composer and arranger.
