The great trumpeter Arturo Sandoval joins us on the next Improvised Thoughts with Beegie Adair.
This program was originally heard in 1993 after the release of his album "I Remember Clifford" (just his second recording after fleeing his native Cuba). In fact, at the time of this broadcast Arturo was only 3 years stateside after defecting from Castro's Cuba. He's since become a naturalized American citizen.
We'll hear songs from 2 of his finest recordings - 1991's "Flight To Freedom" CD and "I Remember Clifford", a remarkable celebration of the music of the late, great trumpeter Clifford Brown. Join us for a conversation about Clifford Brown, about artistic expression in Castro's Cuba and about the music made by one of the most amazingly talented and inspiring figures in modern jazz - then and now.
Arturo Sandoval joins us this Sunday night at 7 on Improvised Thoughts with Beegie Adair. Please join us, too!
