Four nights at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, NYC
With music director and trumpeter Jon Faddis; pianist David Hazeltine; bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa; drummer Dion Parson; guitarist Andrew Latona; trumpeters Max Darché, Bruce Harris, Brian Lynch (10/19), Mike Rodriguez (10/20), Cecil Bridgewater (10/21), and Terell Stafford (10/22)
Legendary trumpeter Jon Faddis—protégé of the great Dizzy Gillespie—returns to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on what would have been his mentor’s 100th birthday. Known for an extraordinary, virtually unparalleled range, Faddis has complete mastery over the trumpet and is now an icon in his own right. He evokes the voices of Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Roy Eldridge, and, of course, Gillespie, all while remaining true to his own. In celebration of Gillespie’s centennial, Faddis will curate and direct four special evenings at Dizzy’s featuring surprise guest trumpeters.
