    One of the biggest cultural blows to Fidel Castro occurred in 1990, when jazz trumpet master Arturo Sandoval, who had toured the world wowing audiences with his horn and touting La Revolución, defected and proceeded to proclaim that everything he had said about Castro was a lie.

    There is a movie that was heavily assisted by Sandoval that tells his amazing story. It stars Andy Garcia as Sandoval and is called "For love or Country" (The "or" could be an "of" I don't remember). I really enjoyed it, and Sandoval really did a great job on the music for the movie. If nothing else, listen to it for the music on it! 8)

    What? :shock: This must be some sort of gigantic conspiracy! Every REAL musician knows that you can't be a real musician if you're a Republican!?!

    Somebody call John Kerry, quick!

    I'm at a loss...... :wink:

    Do you really think one of John Kerry's priorities, if he gets elected, will be increasing the government's funding of the performing arts?

    I think we are screwed no matter who gets elected.

    maybe there would be some money for the arts if the deficit wasn't so high. 8)
