Sheila Jordan Quartet
Born in Detroit and raised in poverty in Pennsylvania’s coal-mining country, Jordan began singing as a child and
by the time she was in her early teens was working semi-professionally in Detroit clubs. Her first great influence was Charlie Parker and most of her influences have been instrumentalists. She was a member of a vocal trio,
Skeeter, Mitch And Jean (she was Jean), who sang versions of Parker’s solos in a manner akin to that of the later Lambert, Hendricks And Ross.
After moving to New York in the early 50s, she married Parker’s pianist, Duke Jordan, and studied with Lennie
Tristano, but it was not until the early 60s that she made her first recordings. “The Outer View” with George Russell,
featured a famous 10-minute version of “You Are My Sunshine”.
In the mid-60s her work encompassed jazz liturgies and
extensive club work, and by the late 70s jazz audiences had
begun to understand her uncompromising style a little more
and her popularity increased – as did her appearances on record, which included albums with pianist Steve Kuhn and others. A 1983 duo set with bassist Harvie Swartz, “Old Time Feeling”, comprises several of the standards Jordan
regularly features in her live repertoire, while 1990’s “Lost And Found” pays tribute to her bebop roots. Her
preference for the bass and voice setting led to another remarkable collaboration with bassist Cameron Brown. They are joined on Wednesday by Jay Azzolina & Tony Jefferson.
