9/12/20: GROOVIN’ HIGH: A Tribute to Dizzy Gillespie featuring Jon Faddis

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.

TWO SETS: 5PM + 8PM

 

“I am delighted with the eclectic and inspiring lineup of performances and guest artists for Season 12! We’ll be celebrating South Carolina jazz legend Dizzy Gillespie with the great Jon Faddis, recreating the iconic album “Ellington at Newport,” exploring Latin rhythms with Nestor Torres, bringing back the popular Jazz on Screen show, and of course capping the season off with Holiday Swing. I’m perhaps most excited about our collaboration with the Lowcountry Voices, directed by Nate Nelson, where we will be creating a completely new show celebrating the incredible Gullah musical traditions. I remain incredibly grateful for the community which supports such artistic ambitions; Charleston is the envy of the country for a reason!”

-Robert Lewis, Music Director, Charleston Jazz Orchestra
