Arturo Sandoval defected after Paquito D'Rivera, his former band-mate, had done so years prior and had signed a record contract with Columbia Records. Sandoval then was signed by GRP Records in 1990, who were at the time owned by Academy Award Winning Composer Dave Grusin and his Producing partner Larry Rosen to a contract at the suggestion of Dizzy Gillespie, Sandoval's inspiration as a musician and who also had an album produced by the label six years earlier.

I have always been an Andy Garcia Fan. The first thing I remember seeing him in was in the 1980's. I think he is a truly GREAT actor. He demonstrates a sensitivity and compassion that I have never seen duplicated by another actor.
In this movie, about his beloved Cuba, his performance is without equal. He becomes Arturo. You are there with him and his family, you begin to understand the suffering and pain the revolution brought down upon the Cuban people. It will make you love Cuba, and the Cuban people, even as you hate the regime that destroyed their way of life. In my opinion, this is a MUST see movie. I gave it a 10/10.
