Jon Faddis / Marcus Roberts
Friday, June 13, 2014
Dizzy Gillespie once said of Jon Faddis, “He’s the best ever, including me!” Faddis brings together an unparalleled lineup of jazz trumpeters to celebrate the role of the trumpet in jazz throughout the past century. The Marcus Roberts Trio, known for its virtuosic style, is joined by outstanding young musicians for New Orleans Swing Time, which celebrates the contributions of great New Orleans jazz musicians from Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong to modern favorites.
Note: Due to speaker placement for this event, patrons in the Terrace will not experience the same high quality of sound as in other areas of Orchestra Hall.
