Arturo. A one man musical phenomenon. His band? All Miami-based Cubans: Javier Conception on piano, Tomas Cruz on congas and percussion, drummer Alexis Arce and saxophonist and EWI (electric wind instrument) player Ed Calle. Arturo: Trumpet, piano, keyboard, timbales, jaw harp, scatting that turns into a vocalized bass solo and the occasional strategically placed hit of a stick on the bongos as he passes by them on the stage.
