Jon Faddis

A seasoned leader of big bands, high-flying trumpeter Jon Faddis cut his teeth with the venerated Thad Jones–Mel Lewis Orchestra before moving on to lead the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band and Dizzy Gillespie's United Nations Orchestra. Who better, then, to head up this Jazz at Lincoln Center salute to Gillespie's big-band canon? Guests like Jimmy Heath and Ignacio Berroa are featured in the mix, as well.
