JazzPro Monster Series 8/15/22

Dan Jordan Quartet

When musicians compliment each other, they use the term “monster.”  It’s the highest praise.  It means you are playing at the top of your game. ”

Dan Jordan, or Danny as he is known to his friends, is a graduate of North Texas State University, a current member of the Dr. Phillips Jazz Orchestra, and well known woodwind sideman to anyone who wants the best.  He plays Tenor saxophone and flute with a unique style all of his own.  He was a recording and touring member of Maynard Ferguson's orchestra, and has backed up some of the biggest names in show business.

Dan Jordan recorded his own CD called Pure Joy, and has since appeared on many recordings including Cortez/Williams Project Hermanos, and Chris Cortez' Live at Blue Bamboo.

Besides being everyone's first call side man, Dan is a gifted composer and arranger.  When he leads his quartet his shows are full of surprises and always thoroughly engaging.  When he plays he is transported, and so are we.
