Jon Faddis: Famous Jazz Trumpet Player
Jon Faddis is a world renowned Jazz Trumpet player with great chops, range and improvisation skills. If you like trumpet players that sizzle with flair, power, range and creativity, you'll love listening to Jon Faddis solos. As a high school kid, I bought my first Jon Faddis Record in about 1976 called, Youngblood. I was hooked.
Faddis, by no coincidence is a bit reminiscent of Dizzy Gillespie. He was inspired by him, became good friends of Dizzy and even played with him a number of times. On the Youngblood album he plays some impressive, upper range, high-tempo solos requiring lots of super fast fingering and musical ambition.
Listen to Faddis play with amazing range, flexibility, control, imagination and lightening fast fingering on this great recording below.
