Arturo Sandoval - 10 Time Grammy Award Winner Support: Gareth Williams Power Trio

Booking now closed, a few tickets still left on the door.

A protégé of the legendary jazz master Dizzy Gillespie, 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. Sandoval began studying classical trumpet at the age of twelve, but it didn’t take him long to catch the excitement of the jazz world. He 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.

He is one of the most dynamic and vivacious live performers of our time, and has been seen by millions at the Oscars performing with Celine Dion, at the Grammy Awards with Justin Timberlake and as a leader, as well as on the Billboard Awards with Alicia Keys.

Sandoval has been awarded 6 Grammy Awards, and nominated 17 times; he has also received 6 Billboard Awards and one Emmy Award, the latter for his composing work on the entire underscore of the HBO movie based on his life, “For Love or Country” starring Andy Garcia. His last album “Time for Love” had three Grammy nominations and won two for best album and best production. His latest two new albums are “Dear Diz, Every Day I Think of You” and “ Tangos “. He is also working on a new book chronicling his relationship with Dizzy Gillespie.

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 Sandoval is a retired tenured professor from Florida International University after a prosperous 19 years. Nevertheless, he still works nationally and abroad with innumerable universities and institutions and their music departments offering several scholarships, exercise books, clinics and seminars, and has rendered a considerable amount of time working with the NARAS educational program. He now offers a complete Artist-In-Residence program as well. Arturo Sandoval maintains one of the most extensive educational programs in the industry. He has written four books with one of the most prestigious publishing companies in the industry “Hal –Leonard”, which continue to sell around all the word.

Sandoval is also a renowned classical musician, performing regularly with the leading symphony orchestras from around the world. 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.

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.

His compositions can also be heard on Dave Grusin’s soundtrack for “Havana” and “Random Heart”, in the “Mambo Kings” soundtrack with his Grammy nominated composition “Mambo Caliente”, in the soundtrack of “The Perez Family”, “61”, “Mr. Wrong”, the documentary “Oscar”, and “The Family Fuentes” among of others. He also was commissioned by the Kennedy Center to compose the music for the ballet “Pepito’s Story”, “Soul Possessed”, as well as “Oman O Men”, and “The Chocolate Hot Nutcracker, choreographed by Debbie Allen. And as mentioned above, he was awarded an Emmy for his composing work on the entire underscore of the HBO movie based on his life, “For Love or Country” starring Andy Garcia.

Arturo Sandoval reaches beyond the scope of mere effort. His struggles while in Cuba and since his defection have given him more energy and strength, urging him to accomplish and surpass his childhood dreams. Filled with a virtuoso capability, he desires nothing more than to share his gift with others who feel the same intense adoration for music as he does. One frequently speaks of Arturo Sandoval’s virtuoso technical ability or his specialty in high notes, but he who has seen him on the piano, lyrically improvising a ballad, or has had the opportunity to enjoy the diversity of his music, through his compositions from the most straight ahead jazz, Latin jazz or classical, knows that Arturo Sandoval is a prominent musician, and one recognizes that Arturo is one of the most brilliant, multifaceted and renowned musicians of our time.

Supporting Artist/Band

Support: Gareth Williams Power Trio

Gareth Williams Trio

One of the most intensely creative, dynamic and exciting performers on the UK scene, Gareth Williams has been receiving increasing critical and public acclaim since becoming a professional musician in the early 90s.
Described as “jewel of a player... spinning out luminous introductions and codas” by Jazziz Magazine (USA), he has dazzled audiences not only by his virtuoso approach to the piano, but also by his multi-instrumentalist talents on guitar and vocals.
Born in 1968 into a highly musical family, Gareth took up the piano at the age of five. He turned professional after graduating in English Literature from Cambridge University in 1990 and went on to study music at London’s Guildhall, initially on guitar, later switching to piano. It is mainly as a pianist that Gareth has earned a glowing reputation both in the UK and abroad over the past few years, but his singing and guitar playing have gained increased recognition in their own right. An electrifying performer, he has been described as “…a fantastic improviser” by John Fordham in The Guardian and “If you’ve seen Williams perform, you’ll know that he’s the embodiment of creative energy, a physical player who gets wrapped up in his work, with a keyboard command that’s both impressive and well-directed” by Peter Vacher in Jazzwise.
His first major professional engagement was as keyboard player/MD for jazz hip-hop band Us3 (whose most celebrated hit was ‘Cantaloop’). He performed with the band on a world tour in 1993 and appears on their album ‘Broadway & 52nd’ (Blue Note).
Gareth has since worked as pianist/MD for internationally acclaimed jazz singer Claire Martin (several times winner of the British Jazz Singer of the Year awards) and has also been involved in arranging her music, writing original compositions for her band, singing and playing guitar. He has worked with many international jazz greats, including Art Farmer, George Coleman, Bud Shank, James Moody and Dave Liebman, plus top British musicians such as Jim Mullen, Martin Taylor, Martin Drew, Tommy Smith, Tim Garland, Clark Tracey, Gwyneth Herbert and Iain Ballamy.
As bandleader, he formed the Gareth Williams Trio in 1995, featuring Gareth on piano, guitar and vocals, Dave Green on double bass and Tristan Mailliot on drums. The trio released their debut album ‘THREE’ (Jazz House), recorded live at Ronnie Scott’s in 2001.
In 2005 Gareth showcased a new BBC Radio 3 commission, Poems from the 20th Century, written for iconic British vocalist Norma Winstone.
Gareth is also a member of Iain Ballamy’s Anorak, featuring Steve Watts on bass and Martin France on drums.  He has appeared on the band’s album “More Jazz”.
Gareth’s latest project is The Gareth Williams Power Trio, featuring Laurence Cottle on electric bass and Ian Thomas on drums. The Power Trio released ‘Shock!’ (Linn Records) to great critical acclaim in March 2009. The album features twelve original compositions and a blistering interpretation of John Coltrane’s ‘Giant Steps’. ‘Williams is a hugely gifted pianist, with an apparently endless fund of ideas, plus the detachment to organize them into coherent shapes’. Dave Gelly, The Observer. ‘A prodigiously talented pianist… a joyous, uncompromising celebration of sophistication, musicality, muscularity, it’s shockingly good’. Mojo Magazine. ’The wow factor in Gareth Williams’ all-Welsh trio comes from projecting controlled, inner power into the music… Altogether a triumph of Welsh wizardry. 5 stars’ Garry Booth, BBC Music Magazine.
