Arturo Sandoval's residency is made possible thanks to a generous gift from Hodgson Russ, LLP.

One of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, Arturo Sandoval's talent runs vast and deep. A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, he has been seen by millions at the Oscars performing with Celine Dion, at the Grammy Awards with Justin Timberlake and in his own right as a leader. He also performed at the Billboard Awards with Alicia Keys.

Sandoval has been awarded 9 Grammy Awards, and nominated 17 times. He has also received 6 Billboard Awards and an Emmy Award.

Sandoval brings his legendary talent to the stage of Rosch Recital Hall, performing an eclectic program of Latin jazz with a small combo of professional musicians hand-picked from the faculty and greater-Buffalo area: SUNY Fredonia faculty Bruce Johnstone (sax) and John Bacon (drums), special guests Bobby Jones (keyboard), Jeff Campbell (bass) and Wendell Rivera (percussion). The evening will include an appearance by the Fredonia Latin Jazz Ensemble under the direction of John Bacon. Reflecting Sandoval's commitment to educating and inspiring future generations with his passion for jazz of all styles, he will also give a master class and involve the community during his visit at Fredonia.

Considered by many to be one of the most brilliant, multifaceted and renowned musicians of our time, Arturo Sandoval's versatility can be heard on recordings with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Woody Shaw, Michel Legrand, Bill Conti, and Stan Getz to Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra, Paul Anka, Rod Stewart and Alicia Keys amongst many others. He has performed with John Williams with the Boston Pops, and in the Super Bowl with Tony Bennett and Patti LaBelle.

Filled with undeniable virtuosic talent, Sandoval's impact goes far beyond impressive "pyrotechnics," desiring nothing more than to share his gift with others who feel the same intense adoration for music as he does.

About the artist

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. He began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but quickly caught the spark of the jazz world and has since evolved into one of the world's most acknowledged guardians of jazz trumpet and flugel horn, as well as a renowned classical artist, pianist and composer.

Sandoval was a founding member of the Grammy Award-winning group Irakere, whose explosive mixture of jazz, classical, rock and traditional Cuban music caused a sensation throughout the entertainment world. In 1981, he left Irakere to form his own band, which garnered enthusiastic praise from critics and audiences all over the world, and continues to do so.

Arturo has composed his own "Concerto for Trumpet & Orchestra," which can be heard on "Arturo Sandoval: "The Classical Album. "Arturo has performed with the foremost orchestras in the country as well as abroad and recorded John Williams' Trumpet Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra. His classical artistry has earned him the respect and admiration from the most prestigious conductors, composers and symphony orchestras worldwide.

Considered by many to be one of the most brilliant, multifaceted and renowned musicians of our time, Arturo Sandoval's versatility can be heard on recordings with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Woody Shaw, Michel Legrand, Bill Conti, and Stan Getz to Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra, Paul Anka, Rod Stewart, Alicia Keys and others. He has performed with John Williams with the Boston Pops, and in the Super Bowl with Tony Bennet and Patti LaBelle.
