Hot off a European tour and global workshops, Hollywood comes alive with Jazz Giants Arturo Sandoval and Jon Barnes this Friday and Saturday nights.

Be sure to save the date, this Friday, August 2nd and 3rd, as Jon Barnes will be playing with Arturo Sandoval. The Hollywood Bowl came alive tonight (Wednesday, July 31, 2013), with some great sounds of Arturo Sandoval and his big band. Barnes is working on musical compositions with Sandoval this week.

Three legendary Jazz and Pop musicians in concert: Arturo Sandoval, Skip Martin and Jon Barns. Look for Jon Barnes in Hollywood this weekend at the famous Jazz joint, The “New Catalina Jazz Club”, Friday and Saturday.

ARTURO SANDOVAL is fluent in at least four musical languages. He can burn through an Afro-Cuban groove, tear up a bebop tune, soar over a Mozart concerto, and sooth you with a luscious ballad, all with equal power and grace.

Granted political asylum in July 1990 and U.S. citizenship in 1999, Sandoval and his family now call Miami home. 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. He 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. Sandoval was a founding member of the Grammy-winninggroup Irakere, whose explosive mixture of jazz, classical, rock, and traditional Cuban music caused a sensation throughout the entertainment world.

A collectible in music and history (click here to get yours) The
music pays respect and honor to Miles Davis and his New
commemorative United States Postal Service Stamp. The original
music was written after attending the ceremonies in New York
and at The Hollywood Bowl. Be sure to ask your post office for the
Forever Miles Stamp.

And speaking of big band sounds. Barnes has been commissioned to write and produce music for Arturo Sandoval and his big band. Barnes, Sandoval and Skip Martin (lead singer, Kool and the Gang) just returned recently from a tour in Europe for the daCarbo Jazz Festival.

Barnes jammed with his talented, musical friends playing solo piano, trumpet, and any thing else he can get his hands on during the Dacarbo Jazz Festival in Barnbach, Austria with Skip Martin and Arturo Sandoval. Three days of jam sessions, master classes, and amazing performances were also filmed for an upcoming documentary.
