“Genius is a word too often tossed around in musical circles, but it has been rightfully applied to Stanley Jordan.” -The Los Angeles Times
Among the most gifted guitarists of his generation, Stanley Jordan is master of the two-handed tapping technique, in which he simultaneously plays rhythm and melody. More than a technical phenomenon, however, Jordan conveys an astounding depth of musical expression through a multi-faceted solo repertoire, ranging from bold reinventions of classical masterpieces to improvisational contemporary works. He will be joined by guest artist, singer-songwriter Julia Jordan.
