Jon Faddis is a complete and consummate musician – conductor, composer,and educator. Marked by both intense integrity and humor, Faddis earned accolades from his close friend and mentor John Birks Gillespie, who declared of Faddis, “He’s the best ever, including me!” Time Out New York praises Faddis as “the world’s greatest trumpeter ... brash soloistic logic and breathtaking technical acuity,” and Nat Hentoff, in The Wall Street Journal, characterizes Faddis as “a trumpet player of prodigious lyrical force.”
