Jon Faddis will reunite the Jon Faddis Quartet for a performance of music from his acclaimed 2006 album Teranga.

- Jon Faddis* is an internationally known NEA Jazz Master, jazz advocate, composer, trumpeter and conductor. Having performed with the likes of Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Charles Mingus and Mel Lewis, Faddis is also known for his forays beyond traditional jazz. His distinctive trumpet voice can be heard on albums by performers as varied as Duke Ellington, the Rolling Stones, Frank Sinatra, Kool and the Gang, Luther Vandross, Quincy Jones, Billy Joel and Stanley Clarke. Since leading the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band from 1992 to 2002, Faddis has not presented a major performance series in New York City—until now.
The Jon Faddis Quartet is Jon Faddis (leader and trumpet), David Hazeltine (piano), Kiyoshi Kitagawa (bass), and Dion Parson (drums). In 2005, the Jon Faddis Quartet headlined at the Heineken San Juan Jazz Festival, the Newport Jazz Festival, the Kingston Jazz Festival, the Performing Arts Center at Purchase College-SUNY, St. Louis’ Jazz at the Bistro, and other great venues. The Jon Faddis Quartet is also regularly featured at special events, such as the Friends of Education benefit at the Museum of Modern Art (2004) and at the Neuberger Museum of Art at Purchase College-SUNY, where Faddis premiered his own compositions based on artwork by Romare Bearden on display there (2002). Faddis has maintained his quartet, with various personnel, for over twenty-five years; in its early years, the Jon Faddis Quartet toured for the U.S. State Department, and the quartet continues to tour worldwide today.
