As one of the most gifted guitarists of his generation, Stanley Jordan could easily content himself with the title of 'uncontested master of the two-handed tap technique? which allows him to play rhythm and melody simultaneously, like a pianist or like two guitarists. This spectacular ability gained him fame and respect all over the world. Stanley Jordan is, however, much more than a top-class virtuoso. His interpretations of the grand repertoire ? from Bird and ?Trane to John and Paul ? are true masterpieces which boldly straddle tradition and new age. But the strength & depth of his multi-faceted diamond-like music stem from his early ? and unshakeable - belief in the power of his art. For Stanley, making music has always been more than just entertainment; it is ? in a world that needs it sorely ? a genuine healing journey which will inspire & at the same time cure the soul, in the immediate and utterly therapeutic sense of the word?. A belief mirrored in the radiant faces of the audience at the end of Jordan's moving New Morning concert of July 2007, backed up by Charnett Muffett and David Haynes.
