Jon Faddis has been showing he is one of the best trumpeters in jazz in 35 years now, and it is clear on his new album, "Teranga." It shows his almost-unbelievable like range and power as well as his virtuosic quickness. On "Hey, Lalo!," for instance, his muted solo rips into an upper-register statement of "Flight of the Bumblebee." But he can back down and be touching too, as he shows on "Waltz for My Fathers & Brothers," dedicated to Michael Brecker, afflicted with bone marrow disease. Faddis is gentle with the Brazilian "Laurelyn" and somewhat somber with "Transitions." The album also includes guests such as guitarist Russell Malone, flutist Frank Wess and trumpeter Clark Terry, who joins in on "The Fibble-Ow Blues," a bit of classic Terry garble-talk. They may offer great work, but Faddis is the star. By Bob Karlovits, The Pittsburgh Tribune.
