Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club features 4x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated & Legendary Jazz Guitarist STANLEY JORDAN with his Trio on Saturday, November 6 at 7:30 P.M. Be it bold reinventions of classical masterpieces or soulful explorations through pop-rock hits, to blazing straight ahead jazz forays and ultramodern improvisational works—solo or with a group—Jordan can always be counted on to take listeners on breathless journeys into the unexpected. To date, Jordan has performed in over 60 countries on 6 continents.

Stanley Jordan came to prominence with the release of his 1985 album ‘Magic Touch’, a revolutionary project that placed him at the forefront of re-launching legendary Blue Note Records into a contemporary entity in jazz and beyond. The ‘Magic Touch’ album also established the then-twenty-something Jordan as among the most distinctive and refreshing new voices of the electric guitar. The album became a gold-seller (over 500,000 sold in the U.S. alone) – outstanding for any jazz or instrumental CD.

  • THE LOS ANGELES TIMES said this about a Stanley Jordan performance, “The hour-and-one-half set was a virtuosic tour de force, as Jordan’s sets so often are.” Furthermore, THE LOS ANGELES TIMES Jazz Critic Leonard Feather wrote, “Genius is a word often tossed around in musical circles, but it has been rightfully applied to Stanley Jordan.”

“We are so happy Stanley is coming to play at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. Stanley Jordan is an exceptional musician, artist and individual,” said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “We appreciate Stanley’s willingness to showcase his true guitar artistry at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club on Saturday, November 6. Our audience will enjoy a magical and memorable evening!”
