In the true spirit of Gillespie and his craft, Things To Come is a passionate, high-energy experience. Built on Dizzy’s original song book, these tunes come to life via the collective talents of musical director and lead trumpeter Jon Faddis, and accompanists John Lee, James Moody, Jimmy Heath, Slide Hampton, and Frank Wess, all of whom are former members of the Dizzy Gillespie™ Big Band. Things To Come is everything the title implies—a nod to one of jazz’ great masters, but with a fresh, forward-looking perspective crafted by some of his closest comrades and ardent followers. “Four-and-a-half stars!” -Downbeat
