At a ceremony at the Blue Note jazz club on Nov. 3, the Greenwich Village-Chelsea Chamber of Commerce presented its fourth annual Village Music Legends Award to famed trumpet player Arturo Sandoval, right. The award was presented by G.V.C.C.C. Chairperson Elizabeth Butson, left, a former publisher of The Villager. Sandoval, a Grammy Award winner, gave a spirited performance after accepting the prize. He was honored for his “pioneering and bold spirit, and for his virtuosic fluency in the complexities of both jazz and classical music,” Butson said. The Villager was a sponsor of the event.
