Jon Faddis trumpet solo on Donna Lee
You’re going to love this Jon Faddis Jazz trumpet solo on Donna Lee. If you want to get right to the Jon Faddis trumpet solo, skip ahead on the video to 1:40 . I’m not saying the sax player isn’t worth listening to, I’m just trying to save some of your time as these are busy times. Jon Faddis improvises a little bit more towards the end as he and the sax player trade before going back into the head. I love high note trumpet solos that also have Jazz licks in them.
I wonder what tempo they are taking Donna Lee at, does anybody think they know? This video is of a TV broadcast performed live in the mid 1990s.
