Arturo Sandoval & Jorge Calandrelli "Eternamente Manzanero"
Coming on October 7th
Performing the music of revered Mexican romantic singer/songwriter,
Manzanero, this Sandoval album is a true labor of love
Performing Senor Manzanero's music with co-headliner Jorge Calandrelli, Arturo Sandoval's latest album is a fresh, modern and pleasant take on his beautiful bolero music.The production is immersed in a lounge atmosphere in which sensual rhythms are predominant and the instrumentation is never overly charged. The arrangements travel through diverse genres including jazz, bossa nova, and bolero, yet always conserving a refined and elegant esthetic. But most attractive are the two roles that Sandoval plays in this production; he not only shines as an unsurpassable performer on the trumpet and flugelhorn, but also reveals himself as a sensible crooner.
It's not the first time Sandoval sings on a recording, but he has never dedicated an entire album to the expression of his voice in a romantic and intimate manner. The consistent unity of the quality, style and sound of Eternally Manzanero is the result of the collaboration between a great team of professionals. Amongst them is the brilliant work by Argentine composer and arranger Jorge Calandrelli, who co-produced, did all of the arrangements and also served as pianist throughout the album. Also a part of this outstanding team is the distinguished engineer Dustin Higgins, who contributed the exceptionally high level of mixing and mastering. The encounter of these two stars constitutes an event of transcendental quality: songs, interpretations, arrangements and virtuoso instrumentation.
