Sheila Jordan Performs

Friday, December 14, 2018

The legendary Shiela Jordan wows listeners with 40+ years of musical expertise. First influenced by Charlie Parker, most of her influences have been instrumentalists rather than singers. In the mid-60s her work encompassed jazz liturgies sung in churches and extensive club work, but her appeal was narrow even within the confines of jazz. By the late 70s, jazz audiences had begun to understand her uncompromising style a little more and her popularity increased. A 1983 duo set with bassist Harvie Swartz, “Old Time Feeling”, comprises several of the standards Jordan features in her live repertoire, while 1990’s “Lost And Found” pays tribute to her bebop roots. Both display her unique musical trademarks, such as the frequent and unexpected sweeping changes of pitch, which still tend to confound an uninitiated audience. Jordan is one of only a tiny handful of jazz singers who fully deserve the appellation and for whom no other term will do.
