My last post consisted of various recordings of different latin jazz band performances. One of the most influential and successful latin jazz performers is Arturo Sandoval. Sandoval  is a jazz trumpeter that was born in Cuba in 1949 toured with Dizzy Gillespie. He has won 10 Grammy Awards, 6 Billboard Awards and one Emmy, as well as receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama in 2014.
