Stanford Jazz Orchestra - New Date!

Fredrick Berry directs the Stanford Jazz Orchestra with their special guest soloist, Jon Faddis on trumpet with a program of standards and Faddis' original compositions.
Jon 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 John Birks Gillespie, who declared of Faddis, “He’s the best ever, including me!” Time Out New York (2003) praised Faddis as “the world’s greatest trumpeter... brash soloistic logic and breathtaking technical acuity,” and Nat Hentoff in The Wall Street Journal (2005), characterized Faddis as “a trumpet player of prodigious lyrical force.”
Jon Faddis remains true to the tradition of honoring mentors who taught him, regularly leading master classes and clinics worldwide and also teaching as a full-time faculty member at the Conservatory of Music, Purchase College – SUNY, where he is Artist-in-Residence, Professor, and Director of Jazz Performance, and as a guest lecturer at Columbia College Chicago. Jon Faddis also teaches as a guest lecturer at Columbia College Chicago, home to the Chicago Jazz Ensemble, for which Faddis serves as Artistic Director. | This event has been rescheduled from May 13th.
