Here’s That Rainy Day – 2017
A beautiful ballad statement from the trumpeter
Arturo Sandoval is a true virtuoso on the trumpet, displaying a very wide range, consistently fiery statements, and the ability to play quite fast; he can sometimes really shower listeners with notes and his extroverted wit.
However this performance of “Here’s That Rainy Day” is something quite different.
Joined by Dave Siegel on synthesizer, pianist Kemuel Roig, bassist John Belzaguy, drummer Johnny Friday, and percussionist Tiki Pasillas, Sandoval lets the melody speak for itself, displaying quite a bit of restraint and making every note count a la Chet Baker.
