Episode Summary

EDIT
Trumpeter Jon Faddis has made a name for himself as a critically acclaimed musician around the world. With top music accolades like former Artistic Director of the Chicago Jazz Ensemble; to conducting big band orchestras like the Grammy- Award winning United Nations Orchestra and the Dizzy Gillespie 70th Birthday Big Band, Faddis is continuing to keep the jazz legacy alive with the next generation of musicians with such units like The Jon Faddis Jazz Orchestra of New York and The Triumph of Trumpets. I recently caught up with Jon at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City and talked his role as a father and about the importance of him being college professor and how teaching is key in keeping the musical legacy of jazz alive. During the early stages of jazz music, the big bands reigned supreme. The ballrooms that once housed great bands like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey; had a bevy of artists that shaped how the music and instruments were played. Currently, trumpeter, educator, band leader and now father, Jon Faddis wears many shoes these days. Currently, he's an instructor full-time at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College-SUNY and was guest lecturer at Columbia College in Chicago. Jon's latest disc "Teranga" features guest artists such as Frank Wess, Clark Terry, and Russell Malone. Jon's weeklong engagement at The Blue Note in New York featured his "The Triumphs of Trumpet" set that pays tribute to the great trumpeters living both along with his quartet. Each night his quartet featured many different special trumpeters, which included Lew Soloff, Sean Jones, Terell Stafford, Mike Rodriguez, and Claudio Roditi. He began his career at 18 when he joined the Lionel Hampton Big Band and later the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra as lead trumpet. Throughout his 40 years in the business, he's played with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie to Count Basie. Other major career highlights include: conductor of the Carnegimoreless
