He is, without question, one of the most talented jazz trumpeters to ever walk the earth. And he's used his skill admirably in the service of bebop ideas advanced by his mentor, Dizzy Gillespie. His working band served up bursts of lyricism in abundance — yes, including those altissimo screams — at the CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I.

Personnel: Jon Faddis, trumpet; David Hazeltine, piano; Kiyoshi Kitagawa, bass; Dion Parson, drums; Alioune Faye, percussion.
