Wikipedia : This day (July 24, 1953), in Oakland, California, is born Jon Faddis, an American jazz trumpet player and conductor.

Jon Faddis : 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! As a trumpeter, Faddis possesses a virtually unparalleled range and full command of his instrument, making the practically impossible seem effortless.

@allmusic : When Faddis burst on the jazz scene as a teenager, observers were amazed by his technique and his ability to sound like an identical twin of Dizzy Gillespie (whose complex style had never been successfully duplicated before).

@last.fm : In the mid-eighties, he left the studios to continue to pursue his solo career, which resulted in albums like Legacy, Into The Faddisphere and Hornucopia. As a result of his growth as a musician and individual artist, he became the director and main trumpet soloist with the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni Band and eventually the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band.
