Stanley Jordan Plays Jimi
World-renowned guitarist Stanley Jordan has developed a new live show called Stanley Jordan Plays Jimi. This is a tribute show, but it’s not pure imitation. Instead, Jordan builds on Jimi Hendrix’s legacy in a creative way. As Jordan explains it, “This is my fantasy Jimi Hendrix concert if Jimi were still alive and playing today. By re-imagining his music and channeling his persona, I try to bring that fantasy to life.” It may be surprising that Jordan would take on a project like this – after all, he is already a well-known guitarist with a signature style, four Grammy nominations, and a host of TV appearances over a long career. But Jordan explains, “I feel a strong connection to Jimi Hendrix because he was the first guitarist I emulated as a child. Out of love for Jimi and his music I feel a strong desire to try to keep his legacy alive.”
