Arturo Sandoval On His Presidential Medal of Freedom

Arturo Sandoval is one of our very finest jazz musicians. While he is known mostly for his trumpet artistry, he is also an accomplished pianist, vocalist, and percussionist. Since his 1990 defection from Cuba, he has become a national treasure. He has been nominated for 19 Grammy’s winning 9 times, 4 of them in 2014 for his CD "Dear Diz, (Every Day I Think of You)".
