Groovin’ High: A Tribute to Dizzy Gillespie featuring Jon Faddis

October 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Note: There are two performances: 5pm and 8pm.

With a relationship that spanned 30 years – from idol to mentor to friend, few living musicians have such a deep connection to jazz legend and pioneer of Bebop, Dizzy Gillespie than Jon Faddis. When Faddis blasted onto the jazz scene, audiences were amazed at the young musician’s range, techniques and ability to successfully mirror the complex style of Dizzy 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!” Living legend Jon Faddis will join your Charleston Jazz Orchestra to pay tribute and celebrate the musicianship and life of jazz great Dizzy Gillespie.

Jon Faddis will be in residence over 7 days at our Charleston Jazz Academy providing master classes as well as visiting a few schools in our community sharing his passions for jazz. His residency will culminate with the Charleston Jazz Orchestra performance. The residency and performance are made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts.
