This concert, led by James Weidman and Steve Williams, celebrates swinging and beautiful music of Clifford Jordan. Jordan was a tenor saxophonist born in Chicago. As writer Ted Panken expressed, Jordan’s narrative gifts (included) his lyricism, wit, mastery of changes-playing and vocalized tone, broad and burnished at all tempos and harmonic contexts, equally comfortable deploying the bright colors of the upper register and the dark hues of the tenor’s bottom. His compositions were perfect vehicles for his excellent artistry.
