Sheila Jordan at the Birdland Theater

Sheila Jordan's first great influence was Charlie Parker and, indeed, most of her influences have been instrumentalists rather than singers.

A 1983 duo set with bassist Harvie Swartz, "Old Time Feeling," comprises several of the standards Jordan regularly features in her live repertoire, while 1990's "Lost And Found" pays tribute to her bebop roots. Both sets display her unique musical trademarks, such as the frequent and unexpected sweeping changes of pitch, which still tend to confound an uninitiated audience. Entirely non-derivative, Jordan is one of only a tiny handful of jazz singers who fully deserve the appellation and for whom no other term will do.
