The Cuban-born protégé of Dizzy Gillespie is the winner of ten Grammy Awards, six Billboard Awards, an Emmy Award for his score for the HBO movie based on his life, For Love or Country, and the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom. Arturo Sandoval is the acknowledged guardian of jazz trumpet and flugel horn.
