Dizzy Gillespie was one of the trumpet playing greats. Probably the only guy that surpasses Diz’s playing is John Faddis. This fact was confirmed by Gillespie himself.

Judge for yourself. At the end of this version of ‘Night in Tunisia’ Gillespie and Faddis trade fours and eights ‘til you want to cry. It’s a beautiful thing, a call and response, a conversation between mentor and protégé.

This was Dizzy’s Dream Band, recorded at Lincoln Center in 1982.
