Stanley Jordan is one of the world’s outstanding and most distinctive jazz guitarists.
His unique style is based on his astonishing mastery of a special technique: instead of conventional strumming and picking, Jordan’s innovative ‘touch technique’ is an advanced form of two-handed tapping. Stanley’s fluid, multi-layered textures and sheer virtuosity raises the bar for excellence. But his technique, though impressive, is always a means to a musical end. His music is imbued with a warmth and sensitivity that has captured the imagination of listeners worldwide.
He was initially trained as a classical pianist and he will play that instrument as well in tonight’s performance, sometimes at the same time (!) as the guitar. A unique experience and a rare London appearance of this fantastic artist.
