Dear Diz (Every Day I Think About You)

Biography

So many artists make claims about how music – and more specifically, the music of a particular influential figure – saved their lives. But when trumpeter Arturo Sandoval makes such a claim about Dizzy Gillespie, it’s not an overstatement.

Dear Diz (Every Day I Think of You), set for release on May 8, 2012, on Concord Jazz, is Sandoval’s tribute to Dizzy Gillespie, ... Read more in Amazon's Arturo Sandoval Store

This album is Arturo's first album after being let into the United States to live from Cuba, and is appropriately titled "Flight To Freedom". This guy is one of my all-time favorite trumpet players and he definitely shows why on this recording. Amazing playing, astounding range, huge sound, knockout technique. A lot of the tunes have the Latino AMERICAN feel, which is different and more American sounding than, say, the music Arturo did with Irakere. It has a fusion influence and even has some rock flavor in it in places. However, it still is full of life and energy, and is wonderful to hear as expected. Arturo is much more than a flashy musician. He's a flashy musician with a passion in his playing. The album opens up with the lively "Flight To Freedom", which has Arturo trading off phrases with the saxophonist and they basically are setting you up for the album to come. "Last Time I Saw You" has some amazing trumpet playing from Arturo and is also a cool composition. If this music was in the mainstream, this song would be a hit. It's catchy and the rhythm section is great. Chick Corea stops by on piano for this track. "Caribeno" has an annoying intro (that guitar) but then segways into a wonderful latin tune. Arturo really swings on this one and hits some extraordinarily high notes at the beginning (including a really loud F over Double C). He takes a more laid-back approach with flugelhorn on "Samba De Amore", which is a beautiful song. This is the type of song you could sit back and eat while listening to it. Ironically, the only song I don't particularly care for on this set is the Chick Corea song. It is repetitive and doesn't really go anywhere. Arturo has some good muted trumpet licks but that's about it.Read more ›

it's sparkling, scintillating latino jazz. The trumpet vulcan Artoro Sandoval celebrates this amazing stimulating kind of music as a synthesis between Jazzrock and Salsa in an incomparable way. Enjoy it! Who never heard that sound is missing lot of happiness and acoustical satisfaction.

I've had the pleasure of seeing Arturo play at Citrus College, where one of my best friends was attending as a trumpet musician as well. I sat maybe 20' from the stage. Occasionally, it's all you can do to keep from covering your ears with the power he can put on display. The sound pressure is out of this world. He really lets it all hang out.

That said, the feeling you get with this album is one of joy, spirit, and optimism. I seem to recall my friend explaining to me that Arturo had recently immigrated to America and this was a sort of thanks and appreciation. I hope that's accurate, as it shaped my opinion of the album as I was introduced and continue to enjoy it today. In any event, however you interpret it, the album is easy listening and has a number of good tracks.

There are many releases, and if I were to only buy three albums, it would this, Hot House, and I remember Clifford.

Musicians like Arturo are few and far between. The only other three I think compare (with my I'll admit limited exposure to the scene) are Jon Faddis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Maynard Ferguson.

I don't care to itemize an opinion on every track as many reviewers do, I personally love the hidden gems and deep tracks albums hold, and older treasures like this are worth the pass from start to finish.
