In a career that took flight in 1985 with immediate commercial and critical
acclaim, guitar virtuoso Stanley Jordan has consistently displayed a
chameleonic musical persona of openness, imagination, versatility, respect
and maverick daring. 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.

It was a remarkable experience to be allowed a glimpse into the mind of this brilliant, compassionate musical genius.” – Michelle, surgeon, Chicago, IL
