Arturo Sandoval

Live at the Blue Note (Half Note Records)

Arturo Sandoval has firmly cemented himself in the annals of jazz. His performances are rich in history, education, reverence, and fun. This CD/DVD showcases his 40-plus years in the biz and is a galloping ride replete with Sandoval's signature Afro-Cuban styling, raucous scat vocals (even a little rapping in "Eso Es Lo Que Hay"), and jazz, served straight-up or acid-laced. He pays respects to his mentor Dizzy Gillespie with "The Real McBop" and "Blues for Diz" and even runs through Alicia Keys's "If I Ain't Got You" with pleasure and élan. The album's original compositions are full of unexpected zings and unrelenting jams. Live at the Blue Note once again proves Sandoval's appeal is ageless.
