Happy Birthday Arturo Sandoval

During an appearance on Good Morning America Arturo Sandoval talks about his life as a Jazz trumpeter in Cuba, then performs "Groovin High" a composition by his teacher Dizzy Gillespie.

Arturo Sandoval was born on November 6, 1949 in Artemisa, Cuba. He began to play music at age 13 in the village band. After playing many instruments, he fell in love with the trumpet. In 1964, he began three years of serious classical trumpet studies at the Cuban National School of Arts. By the age of 16 he had earned a place in Cuba's all-star national band. By this time, he was totally immersed in jazz, with Dizzy Gillespie as his idol.

In 1971 he was drafted into the military. Luckily, Sandoval was still able to play with the Orquesta Cubana de Musica Moderna. Because of this he was able to continue his daily practice regimen.

In Cuba, Sandoval co-founded the band Irakere with Chucho Valdés and Paquito D'Rivera. They quickly became a worldwide sensation. Their appearance at the 1978 Newport Jazz Festival introduced them to American audiences and garnered them a recording contract with Columbia Records.

Sandoval was still exploring his musical possibilities and left the group in 1981 to form his own band. He continued to tour worldwide with his new group, playing a unique blend of jazz and Afro Cuban music. In addition to playing Afro Cuban jazz, he performed classical music with the BBC Symphony Orchestra in London and the Leningrad Symphony in the former Soviet Union.

While he was still in Cuba, he was influenced by the music of Jazz legends Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown, and Dizzy Gillespie, whom he finally met in 1977. Gillespie promptly became a mentor and colleague, playing with Arturo in concerts in Europe and Cuba and later featuring him in The United Nations Orchestra. Sandoval defected to the United States of America in Spain, while touring with Gillespie in 1990, and became a naturalized citizen in 1999.

Sandoval's life was the subject of the 2000 TV film For Love or Country: The Arturo Sandoval Story, starring Andy Garcia. He currently resides in Calabasas, California.

Don't be bullied by your insurance company!!!

Insurance companies are bullying their insured’s by using scare tactics to force you to use their direct repair facilities. In the auto collision industry this is known as steering.

Section 2610 of the New York State Insurance Law provides that the insurance carrier shall not require that repairs be made in a particular place or shop or by a particular concern.

An insurance company cannot tell you to go to its shop or drive in location to get your damaged car inspected. The insurance company must meet you at some place and time reasonably convenient to you.

All Star Collision as a service to our customers will assist you in the reporting of your insurance claims. We will set up to have an adjuster come out to our shop and we will negotiate to get paid for the proper and safe repairs to your vehicle.


Insurance Steering
We accept all insurance companies. We work on all makes and models.

Steering is when an insurance company pressures you to have your vehicle repaired at a body shop other than the one you have chosen.
You have the legal right to have your vehicle repaired at any shop you choose. Many insurance companies would like you to choose an auto repair shop that has agreed to repair your vehicle under certain guidelines. This usually means lesser quality.
All Insurance companies know and understand the laws concerning steering. Some have become very good at explaining things in just a way as to confuse the customers.
Here is a list of items you may hear:
"We cannot guarantee the work at the shop you have chosen because they are not on our list of preferred shops."
"It will take longer for the repairs because it will take several days to get an adjuster to that shop"
"You will be required to pay the difference in rates that your shop charges."
These tactics are 'half-truths' that enable the insurance companies to steer customers to a shop where they have control over the process. In answer to these statements, All Star Collision. has a life time warranty on all of their workmanship and a warranty trough the auto repair facility is the one that is important. Not the insurance company. Every Insurance company has appraisers available to inspect vehicles. All Star Collision takes responsibility of making sure they inspect in a timely manner.
Nearly all of the repair rates in our area are the same. Your insurance company is required to cover the prevailing rates. All Star Collision never charges more than what Insurance companies are paying in the area.

This includes buffing, waxing the exterior and a full interior cleaning. This offer will continue until the end of June 2016. Certain restrictions may apply, call or come in for detail...
