Ronny Jordan

One of the acid jazz movement's most prominent guitarists, London-born Ronny Jordan was widely credited with returning the instrument to its rightful place as a major force in modern-day jazz; despite outcries from purists, few other artists of his era proved more pivotal in knocking down the long-immutable boundaries of contemporary black music. The son of a preacher, Jordan's early musical history was rooted in gospel; his first public performances were with gospel groups, but the outbreak of Brit-funk during the early '80s led him to begin exploring other avenues of music, culminating in a fascination with jazz. A self-taught guitarist, his early influences included Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, and Grant Green, and when hip-hop began to take off, Jordan started exploring ways to fuse jazz and rap together. The first fruit of his endeavors was the single "After Hours," a primitive foray into what would eventually become known as acid jazz. Record companies initially wanted no part of Jordan's music, but when his distinctive cover of the Miles Davis classic "So What" became a hit, it was clear something was afoot. He soon released his debut LP, 1992's Antidote, but it was rapper Guru's breakthrough 1993 album, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1, on which Jordan's guitar work was prominently featured, that made acid jazz a viable proposition. He subsequently issued such albums as 1993's Quiet Revolution, 1996's Light to Dark, 2000's Brighter Day, and 2003's At Last. Ronny Jordan died in January 2014 at the age of 51. ~ Jason Ankeny

Ronny Jordan,where are you now?.unsung please?...$$ $

Unfinished previous post: Ronny Jordan certainly will be missed but his catalog of beautiful music: ballads; mid tempo; and funky ultempo tracks will be forever cherished and played...int r o d u c e d to another generation of good music loving aficionados!

Great, melodic player and this is one of the most laid- back atmospheric instrumental s on guitar in Mr. Jordan's instrumental genre (if you have to categorize it). This track commands your attention and you never want it to end. The flute solo further enhanced Jordan's rich, Grant Green-like stamp on guitar...sho c k e d to hear of his passing and not sure the cause was ever reported. It seems that our society is constantly saying that "he/she will sorely be missed"- - - an inevitable fate of us all
