Jon Faddis
Remembrances Jon Faddis (Chesky) By Arthur C. Bourassa Jon speaks for himself on this CD. For many years many critics thought of him as a Dizzy Gillespie clone. As director of The Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra he earned the distinction of being his own man. Carlos Franzetti, who arranged and conducted Portraits of Cuba (a Grammy winner for Paquito DíRivera) uses his ingenious mastery again with Jon. This disc is a well thought out program of standards, both from the Great American Songbook and standards written by world class musicians. Carlos chose instrumentation that is unique for a jazz group. The sidemen on this disc are all excellent musicians in their own right. Here, you have Paquito DíRivera playing soprano and tenor sax besides clarinet. His soprano solo on "In Your Own Sweet Way" is unmistakable, but still he embraces the theme of the disc and enhances the music of Faddis. Also included in the group are a bassoon, French horn, oboe, English horn, in addition to the sax section, rhythm section, and trombone. "Sophisticated Lady," "Laura," and the closer, "Goodbye," are all now new again for a new generation. Jon does not use high harmonics on any of the tunes. All the tunes are done in a relaxed manner that celebrates the ballads without disturbing their origins. "Footprints," "Naima," La Rosa Y El Sauce," and Franzettiís own composition "Riverside Park," are all done with thought and conviction by Jon. Remembrances has the potential to become a classic that anyone can understand and enjoy. Chesky recorded this CD at St. Peterís Episcopal Church in New York City and it is another example of their quality technology. .
