Jon Faddis’s Triumph of Trumpets

featuring Terell Stafford & Sean Jones

Sponsored by Ted Wheeler

“Four star! …warm …original …superhuman technique.” The New York Times

Three of the most dynamic trumpeters alive today…on one stage. Jon Faddis has assembled an all-star cast with fellow trumpeters Terell Stafford and Sean Jones for a celebration of the role of the trumpet in jazz throughout the past century, from Louis Armstrong to Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie and more.

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 Dizzy Gillespie, who declared, “He’s the best ever, including me!” As a trumpeter, Faddis possesses a virtually unparalleled range and full command of his instrument, making the practically impossible seem effortless.
