Musician Arturo Sandoval is the protege of Dizzy Gillespie and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Sandoval is most famous for his jazz and Latin trumpet playing, but in this Jazz Perspective producer Reese Erlich gets Sandoval to talk about how he composed music for 12 films, including his Grammy-nominated work on The Mambo Kings.

ARTURO SANDOVAL: When you watch the movie, be sure whatever you're doing is in function of enhancing the film. You have to collaborate with the drama of the film.
