It wouldn't seem possible to do a reasonable survey of the 20th century trumpet playing on one CD, but somehow trumpeter Arturo Sandoval has done just that. Known as an immensely gifted and versatile player, Sandoval tips his hat to such jazzmen as Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, and his mentor Dizzy Gillespie, as well as classical players such as Timofei Dokschizer and Maurice Andre. More than simply playing tunes these trumpeters made famous, Sandoval plays in the style of each trumpeter, even pulling signature quotes from their solos. It's a remarkable feat. With Quincy Jones at the production helm, the music and backing band changes according to the tributee--lush big band swing, bebop, organ jazz, classical, and Latin music are all covered. Surprisingly, there's not as much Latin jazz as you'd expect from the former member of Irakere, but with so much ground covered, this is more of an observation than a complaint. --Tad Hendrickson

"Arturo shines in this recording that pays homage to great trumpeters of days gone by. Sandoval demonstrates his flexibility and musical knowledge in this recording - and does an amazing job of imitating those great trumpeters, while lending just enough of his own style and artistry to make each piece his own.
A wonderful addition to the trumpeter, or trumpet fan's collection."
