Recently the legendary composer, orchestrator, multi-instrumentalist, and author David Amram celebrated his 89th birthday with his usual youthful love of music, memory, and friendship at the Zebulon Cafe in Los Angeles and our cameras were lucky to capture the evening magic. Here is a small tribute to the great Arturo Sandoval, whom David met in Dizzy Gillespie’s historic voyage to Havana in 1977. David plays a composition he had written while on the voyage from New Orleans to Cuba, and here dedicates it to Arturo. Enjoy!
