"The first thing, and most important one, was a love for music, man," Sandoval says, referring to the greatest lesson he learned from Gillespie. "And enthusiasm and the desire to learn and get the new things."
Sandoval will play at the University of Colorado at Boulder tonight starting at 7:30 p.m. in Macky Auditorium; he'll hold a pre-concert conversation with John Davis, CU's director of jazz studies, at 6:45 in Macky room 102.
