Be it bold reinventions of classical masterpieces or soulful explorations through pop-rock hits, to blazing straight ahead jazz forays and ultramodern improvisational worksโ€”solo or with a groupโ€”Jordan can always be counted on to take listeners on breathless journeys into the unexpected.

Instead of conventional strumming and picking, Jordan’s innovative “touch technique” is an advanced form of two-handed tapping. While a handful of other players were using similar techniques, Stanleyโ€™s fluid, multi-layered textures and sheer virtuosity raised 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. A classically trained pianist before playing guitar, Jordan wanted greater freedom in voicing chords on his guitar, so he applied piano principles to do so. Jordan’s touch technique allows the guitarist to play melody and chords simultaneously with an unprecedented level of independence. It also allows Jordan to play simultaneously on two different guitars, or even on guitar and piano. ๐ป๐‘’ ๐‘ ๐‘Ž๐‘ฆ๐‘  ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘ก โ€œ๐ผ ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘–๐‘›๐‘˜ ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘–๐‘ก ๐‘Ž๐‘  ๐‘Ž ๐‘ ๐‘–๐‘›๐‘”๐‘™๐‘’ ๐‘–๐‘›๐‘ ๐‘ก๐‘Ÿ๐‘ข๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก, ๐‘๐‘ข๐‘ก ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘’ ๐‘ค๐‘–๐‘กโ„Ž ๐‘Ž ๐‘ค๐‘–๐‘‘๐‘’ ๐‘Ÿ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘”๐‘’ ๐‘œ๐‘“ ๐‘ก๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘Ž๐‘™ ๐‘๐‘œ๐‘™๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘ โ€”๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘Ž๐‘กโ€™๐‘  ๐‘คโ„Ž๐‘ฆ ๐ผ ๐‘‘๐‘œ ๐‘–๐‘ก.โ€

He has performed at many festivals, including the Kool Jazz Festival, the Concord Jazz Festival, and the Montreaux International Jazz Festival. During the 1980s he collaborated with a diverse array of artists, including performances with Art Blakey and Richie Cole and recordings with Stanley Clarke and Kenny Rogers. The track with Rogers, “Morning Desire”, became America’s #1 country song in 1986. Later Jordan became a frequent guest with Les Paul during Paul’s legendary Monday nights at Iridium in New York. Today Jordan performs frequently as a soloist and with his band, as well as collaborating with other guitarists such as Kevin Eubanks, Sharon Isbin and Muriel Anderson. He’s also a frequent guest with jam bands such as the Dave Matthews Band, the String Cheese Incident, Phil Lesh, Moe and Umphrey’s McGee.

Jordan had begun applying his unique technique to his already exemplary traditional playing ten years prior to the “Magic Touch” album. Though Jordan showcased the technique in a variety of musical styles from swing to rock, it was smooth jazz radio support for his singular versions of โ€œThe Lady in My Lifeโ€ (first recorded by Michael Jackson) and the Beatlesโ€™ โ€œEleanor Rigbyโ€ that sent Magic Touch to the top of Billboardโ€™s jazz chart for a stunning and record-breaking 51 weeks. ๐‘ป๐’‰๐’† “๐‘ด๐’‚๐’ˆ๐’Š๐’„ ๐‘ป๐’๐’–๐’„๐’‰” ๐’‚๐’๐’ƒ๐’–๐’Ž ๐’ƒ๐’†๐’„๐’‚๐’Ž๐’† ๐’‚ ๐’ˆ๐’๐’๐’…-๐’”๐’†๐’๐’๐’†๐’“ (๐’๐’—๐’†๐’“ 500,000 ๐’”๐’๐’๐’… ๐’Š๐’ ๐’•๐’‰๐’† ๐‘ผ.๐‘บ. ๐’‚๐’๐’๐’๐’†)- ๐’๐’–๐’•๐’”๐’•๐’‚๐’๐’…๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’‡๐’๐’“ ๐’‚๐’๐’š ๐’‹๐’‚๐’›๐’› ๐’๐’“ ๐’Š๐’๐’”๐’•๐’“๐’–๐’Ž๐’†๐’๐’•๐’‚๐’ ๐‘ช๐‘ซ.
