Trumpeter, pianist and composer Arturo Sandoval is one of Cuba's best-known musical exports. He's won multiple Grammys, including one for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album in 2013, and his life inspired the film For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, starring Andy García. On this installment of Piano Jazz, Sandoval proves to McPartland that his talent on the trumpet crosses over to the piano. He performs his original tunes "Surena" and "Romantico," as well as Johnny Green's "Body and Soul," with host Marian McPartland.
