  • Recorded at Sound On Sound, New York, New York on January 6-9, 1996. Includes liner notes by Bret Primack.
  • "Real McBop" was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition.
  • Personnel: Arturo Sandoval (trumpet).
  • Recording information: Sound on Sound Studios, New York, NY (01/06/1996-01/09/1996).
  • It seems remarkable that Arturo Sandoval never seems to win any jazz polls, for few trumpeters can come close to equaling his technique, jazz chops, and warm sound. On this advanced hard bop date, the music is strictly straight-ahead without any Latin rhythms. Sandoval matches wits quite successfully with clarinetist Eddie Daniels on two songs, tenor great Michael Brecker on three (including a memorable rendition of "Moment's Notice"), and veteran flĀgelhornist Clark Terry on a joyous "Mack the Knife." In addition, Sandoval pays tribute to Woody Shaw, John Coltrane, and Dizzy Gillespie. Other highlights include the moody "Streets of Desire" (on which Sandoval plays piano), the racehorse tempo of "Real McBop" (which has an impossible but impeccably played melody chorus), and Sandoval's humorous use of the plunger mute on "It Never Gets Old." All in all, this is one of Arturo Sandoval's finest recordings to date. ~ Scott Yanow

JazzTimes (11/96, p.106) - "This hard blowing date by the virtuoso Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval invokes the spirit of jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, and Woody Shaw, and the entire venerable jazz tradition, from New Orleans to swing to bebop and beyond..."
