The "Swing Jazz Series", a 4-part concert event celebrating the spirit of Swing, presented byThe Jazz Diva Foundation and the Performing Arts Coalition. This classic Series will showcase the outstanding John Brown Big Band, accompanied by internationally-renowned artists, Terence Blanchard, Nnenna Freelon, Tia Fuller, and Jon Faddis.

ABOUT JON FADDIS: Jon Faddis is an American jazz trumpet player, conductor, composer, and educator renowned for both his playing and for his expertise in the field of music education. Upon his first appearance on the scene, he became known for his ability to closely mirror the sound of trumpet icon Dizzy Gillespie, who was his mentor along with Stan Kenton trumpeter Bill Catalano.


At 18, he joined Lionel Hampton's big band before joining the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra as lead trumpet. After playing with Charles Mingus in his early 20s, Faddis became a noted studio musician in New York, appearing on many pop recordings in the late 1970s and early 1980s. 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.


ABOUT JOHN BROWN: Bassist, composer, educator and actor John Brown is a native of Fayetteville, North Carolina, and currently resides in Durham, NC. He is a graduate of the School of Music at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the School of Law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He currently serves as Director of the Jazz Program and Associate Professor of the Practice of Music at Duke University, and has served on the faculties of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, North Carolina Central University and Guilford College (NC).
