Stanley Jordan plays with an uncommon depth of feeling. Many who see him perform for the first time are struck by the emotional intensity of his playing. There are times when he seems totally immersed in the music. As a listener, it is hard not to be affected by this feeling.
Before you know it, you are drawn in to a new musical world with its own rules and its own seemingly limitless possibilities. And whether he’s spinning out ever-new variations on songs he’s played for years, or creating new songs on the spot, his shows are dependably unpredictable.
If you want to take a listen, his most popular and successful albums are Standards Vol. 1 (1986), Stanley Jordan – Live in Montreal (Montreal Jazz Festival) (2003), and State of Nature (2008). View other albums here.
