I have liked Arturo Sandoval's music for years and I knew he was a great trumpet/horn player. On Thursday night I saw him play the second set with his quintet at The Iridium in midtown Manhattan and I was stunned. In addition to trumpet, he is a superb piano and drum player. A decent singer too.
I love surprises like I experienced on Thursday. Tell me about others who are similarly multi-talented. I know they are out there (e.g., McCartney, Prince, etc.), but what other horn players?
