Ronny Jordan

One of the acid jazz movement's most prominent guitarists, London-born Ronny Jordan was widely credited with returning the instrument to its rightful place as a major force in modern-day jazz; despite outcries from purists, few other artists of his era proved more pivotal in knocking down the long-immutable boundaries of contemporary black music. The son of a preacher, Jordan's early musical history was rooted in gospel; his first public performances were with gospel groups, but the outbreak of Brit-funk during the early '80s led him to begin exploring other avenues of music, culminating in a fascination with jazz. A self-taught guitarist, his early influences included Charlie Christian, Wes Montgomery, and Grant Green, and when hip-hop began to take off, Jordan started exploring ways to fuse jazz and rap together. The first fruit of his endeavors was the single "After Hours," a primitive foray into what would eventually become known as acid jazz. Record companies initially wanted no part of Jordan's music, but when his distinctive cover of the Miles Davis classic "So What" became a hit, it was clear something was afoot. He soon released his debut LP, 1992's Antidote, but it was rapper Guru's breakthrough 1993 album, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1, on which Jordan's guitar work was prominently featured, that made acid jazz a viable proposition. He subsequently issued such albums as 1993's Quiet Revolution, 1996's Light to Dark, 2000's Brighter Day, and 2003's At Last. Ronny Jordan died in January 2014 at the age of 51. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

This has always been one of the favorite guitar pieces, so mellow. Didn't know the guitarist until now. Another talented musician gone too soon.

Ronny Jordan was a class act, and would have been a magnificent jazz guitar force, had he lived. I had the privilege of seeing him, solo, in a small club next to Fenway Park, Boston. I will miss his music.

jazz personified, you go Ronny!!!!
Very groovy song
Very nice music riding music on the hyw off until the sun set.
This kind of music you listen to when you are with someone special. Drinking a cool drink or some wine and just enjoying each other company. Or if you are by yourself just think about that special someone in your special place. Sitting outside on your porch, sitting in the park, or just sitting and cooling it. Love this music.
