Tunisia Blues – an Arturo Sandoval creation

Posted on August 18, 2009 by Sweets

Arturo Sandoval holding a trumpet.I love Arturo Sandoval, I really don’t know whether or not he came up with the Tunisia Blues – which is a blues break in A Night in Tunisia.

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.

Round red play button.

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

  1. Woah, that was awesome! I don’t get what the switch stance fingerings does, but it apparently definitely helps with his mojo. That’s a killer solo!

  2. Trumpet Student says:

    i was wondering where he learned it as well, then i watched the DVD Dizzy Gillespie and the united nations orchestra, during the last song, a night in Tunisia, Dizzy starts his solo with the exact same lick. So i think it’s safe to assume that Arturo made the song as a tribute to dizzy
