Jon Faddis playing trumpet high notes on Mood Indigo

Jon Faddis playing some trumpet.You’re really going to love this trumpet solo of Jon Faddis on Mood Indigo if you haven’t heard it yet. If you have heard it, you’ll still love to hear it again because it’s just that good.

Jon Faddis plays a bunch of lip trills on a high C, then a high E, and finally hits the highest note of a high Bb. You know, the one that’s a whole step below a double high C.

After that, Jon Faddis holds out a really nice high G with great vibrato for an impressive period of time. Even though all the high notes are cool, my favorite part is at the end of the trumpet solo where Jon Faddis plays a really fast bebop lick to ponder over.

This trumpet solo is from the album To Diz with Love: Diamond Jubilee Recordings and was recorded live, you need to own it.
