Jon Faddis Quartet

“He’s the best ever, including me!” — Dizzy Gillespie

“…the world’s greatest trumpeter … the greatest trumpeter on the planet for decades … brash soloistic logic and breathtaking technical acuity …” — Time Out New York

Jon Faddis is a Grammy Award–nominated jazz trumpet player, conductor, composer and educator. Born in Oakland, California, he began playing trumpet at age eight, inspired by an appearance of Louis Armstrong on the Ed Sullivan Show. After playing with Charles Mingus in his early 20s, Faddis became a noted studio musician in New York, recording with numerous jazz luminaries, including Dizzy Gillespie, George Benson, Anthony Braxton, Kenny Burrell, Charles Mingus, Oscar Peterson, and Lalo Schifrin, among others. His original compositions may be heard on his Grammy-nominated Remembrances (Chesky 1998), Hornucopia (Epic 1991), Into the Faddisphere (Epic 1989), and Teranga (Koch 2006). In addition to forming his own quartet, Faddis has directed several orchestras, including the Grammy-winning United Nation Orchestra, the Dizzy Gillespie 70th Birthday Big Band, the Carnegie Hall Centennial Big Band, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band, and the Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra of New York. Faddis has also served as guest conductor and featured guest with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Jon Faddis has an enduring commitment to the education of young musicians, and frequently conducts clinics and master classes, devoting personalized attention to teaching the next generation of jazz musicians.
