His songs have been on 35 million CD’s and he has recorded 16 CD’s of his own material which gave us MARINA DEL REY, SURVIVAL, CHARLIE PARKER LOVES ME and SOUL ON SOUL which was a duet with wife AMY SKY. Yet Jordan has always loved singing the American songbook. The great songs of the mid 20th century and so finally he’s made that leap. On his new cd “BOTH SIDES “Jordan recorded with the Prague Symphony. Songs like “THE NEARNESS OF YOU” and “WHAT ARE YOU DOING THE REST OF YOUR LIFE” are sprinkled in with Joni Mitchel’s “BOTH SIDES NOW” and Lou Reeds masterpiece “WALK ON THE WILD SIDE”. Featuring Randy Brecker on trumpet this album is both cool and modern and Jordan’s voice drifts above it all with some of his best vocal performances ever.
