Living legend Jon Faddis will join the Charleston Jazz Orchestra to celebrate the musicianship and life of Dizzy Gillespie. With a relationship that spanned 30 years—from idol to mentor to friend—few living musicians have such a deep connection to the jazz legend and bebop pioneer Dizzy Gillespie than Faddis. When he blasted onto the jazz scene, audiences were amazed at the young musician’s range, techniques and ability to successfully mirror the complex style of Gillespie. Faddis soon developed his own trademark style and is now known as one of the most innovative and inspiring jazz trumpeters of our time. Even Dizzy described Faddis as “He’s the best ever – including me!”
