Nothing can match the thrill of seeing a concert in-person, not even watching it on a high-definition Blu-Ray or listening to it on a high-definition parrot.

Best-available seating will be assigned upon purchase.
The preservationists of MCG Jazz fortify the Pittsburgh jazz community with performances by internationally renowned masters of the form. Acclaimed trumpeter Jon Faddis reaches all 350 seats of the MCG Jazz Music Hall with his brash brass skills. Since acquiring the perfect pitch and oxygen-soaked gills of friend and mentor Dizzy Gillespie at a young age, Jon’s storied talent has taken him to Grammy nominations, stints with Charles Mingus, and conducting duties with the Chicago Jazz Ensemble and Carnegie Jazz Band. In his stirring live performance, Jon’s consummate bugle skills make dazzlingly intricate arrangements seem effortless, like Einstein devising a proof in his pajamas.
Preserve. Present. Promote. These three p's comprise the mission of The Manchester Craftsmen Guild, also known as MCG Jazz. Since 1987, MCG has fortified the musical community of Pittsburgh. In addition to drawing in the nation's most renowned jazz artists, they nurture culture for later generations by archiving their shows on their own record label. Past appearances have included greats such as Stanley Turrentine, Joe Williams, and even Dizzy Gillespie.
