Stanley Jordan

Concert or Performance

5 Aug 2022 Monthly Event

One of the most lauded and daring modern jazz guitarists of our time, Stanley Jordan is coming to Australia’s east coast for a headline tour in August 2022, including a special guest slot at Sydney Guitar Festival.

A true maverick, Jordan is known for his signature mastery of a special technique on the guitar’s fretboard called ‘touch technique’, which sees the charismatic virtuoso use an advanced form of two-handed tapping, instead of conventional strumming and picking.

In an illustrious career spanning four decades, Jordan has earned four Grammy Award nominations, with worldwide commercial and critical acclaim throughout, since first coming 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, and also established the then-twenty-something Jordan as among the most distinctive and refreshing new voices of the electric guitar.

Jordan consistently displays a chameleonic musical persona of openness, imagination, versatility and innovation. He can always be counted on to take listeners on a breathless journey into the expected 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.
