Stanley Jordan Returns

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-fan favorite Stanley Jordan can always be counted to take listeners on breathless journeys into the unexpected. Since 1985, his fast-track acclaim was his mastery of a special technique on the guitar's fretboard, Instead of conventional strumming and picking, Jordan's innovative "touch technique" is an advanced form of two-handed tapping, and he can even simultaneously play two different guitars. A four-time Grammy nominee, he has performed in over 60 countries and numerous festivals, including the Kool Jazz Festival, the Concord Jazz Festival, and the Montreux International Jazz Festival. His recording of Morning Desire with Kenny Rogers was America's Number One country song in 1986; performed with Quincy Jones, Benny Carter, and Dizzy Gillespie; and has even jammed with the Dave Matthews Band.

Tickets: $45 & $50
