Tunisia Blues – an Arturo Sandoval creation
Click the red play button to listen to Arturo Sandoval’s great trumpet performance, lots of great licks to steal in the video.
One of the main reasons I wanted to share this Jazz trumpet video with you is because there are some really great close ups of how Arturo Sandoval handles the trumpet while doing some really intense soloing.
If you look closely, you can see how Arturo Sandoval switches back and forth between flat trumpet fingerings and curled trumpet fingerings. I’m not a 100% sure on how this helps his trumpet technique, but it obviously must be doing something for him.
Also take a look at how Arturo Sandoval sets up his chops before playing in the super upper register on trumpet. It’s just something to think about. There is a really nice pedal tone performance at the end of his solo, finally ending on a super high note. Anyway, Arturo performed this great trumpet solo back in 1991 at the Jacksonville Jazz Festival
