Jon Faddis

When Jon Faddis burst on the jazz scene as a teenager, observers were amazed by his technique and his ability to sound like an identical twin of Dizzy Gillespie (whose complex style had never been successfully duplicated before). After a period, he was typecast as a Dizzy imitator but Faddis' remarkable range (hitting higher notes than Gillespie ever could) and the gradual development of his individual sound have helped him overcome the early fault. In fact, Faddis can now also imitate Roy Eldridge and Louis Armstrong quite well, too. Gillespie was always Faddis' idol, from the time he started playing trumpet at age eight. After moving to New York in the early '70s, Faddis played with Lionel Hampton and Charles Mingus (guesting on a recorded concert with the bassist when Roy Eldridge became ill) and then recorded two notable albums for Pablo including a duet session with Oscar Peterson. After playing a bit with Gillespie (their best encounters in the mid-'70s were unfortunately not recorded), Faddis seemed to disappear, sticking to studio work and playing first trumpet with the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra. After re-emerging in the mid-'80s, Faddis recorded for Concord and Epic and in 1993 became the musical director of the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra. He released Teranga on Koch in 2006. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

he is the shizznit
Jon played in our HS jazz band with Marc Russo, Ruth Davies, Charlie Morillas under the tutelage of Bob Soder. He was awesome then as he is now. albeit a bit more grown up LOL. He was really a trip to enjoy both in his typical kid games and his out of this world trumpet playing! He was also awesome on fluegelhorn. . . Not to mention he loved my moms meatballs... . ;)
search bernjazz90 on youtube, it's a full jon faddis concert featuring arturo sandoval, james morrison, wynton marsalis. it's really something, JF is a very very underrated trumpet player IMO. His style is completely unique and he probably has the fullest sound of any trumpet player alive today.
Someone said Jon rarely gets past the comparisons to Dizzy G- You have to see him in live performance to know that at this stage of his game there is no longer a need for the comparison. He hits notes that cannot be found in any of the 'greats' repertoire. He attacks those notes with a fervor I've yet to see or hear anywhere on the planet. I used to think that he and Maynard Ferguson came from the same place as Luciano Pavorotti- The city of high notes! Faddis comes from a whole other place.

Qaltz for my father and brothers is actually the best i have heard him play because to me it sounds tasteful
jon ,freddie , and charles (tolliver 4 dem that dont know) , is da s**t 4 fire musiq...long live young lions!!!
My highschool jazz band did a clinic with him and T.S. Monk at the local community college just outside KC a few weeks ago and got the opportunity to see them at the Blue Room for free. It was a great experience.
The album that turned me onto Jon Faddis was "Into the Faddisphere" . You guys should get that album.
I'm surprised there are so few comments about Jon's versatility and virtuosity in his chosen musical field! You often hear of his ability to mimic Diz and others, but you rarely hear of his own unique style. Kudos--Jon.

He sounds great.
Saw Faddis a few years ago back in NYC...he was tired and frazzled from a hop skip and a jump thru the city but you could not tell it from his playing...he didn't miss one high note nor did he do the 'unsyncopate d ' thing...he was 'on'...That performance along with a McCoy Tyner performance I saw a few years later certainly rank as high notes of my life...don't make 'em like that anymore...al t h o u g h Roy Hargrove strives toward memorable performance when he does the 'standards' thing...oh well, Jon
