Jazz pianist Duke Jordan is joined here by Jesper Lundgaard on bass and Aage
Tanggaard on drums for a session recorded live at Nagaya on June 14, 1982.
Jordan was born in New York and raised in Brooklyn. An imaginative and gifted
pianist, Jordan was a regular member of Charlie Parker's so-called "classic
quintet" (1947–48), featuring Miles Davis. He participated in Parker's Dial
sessions in late 1947 that produced "Dewey Square," "Bongo Bop," "Bird of
Paradise," and the ballad "Embraceable You." These performances are featured on
Charlie Parker on Dial.
Jordan had a long solo career from the mid-1950s onwards, although for a period
in the mid-1960s he drove a taxi in New York to get more money. After periods
accompanying Sonny Stitt and Stan Getz, he performed and recorded in the trio
format. His most notable composition, "Jordu," became a jazz standard when
trumpeter Clifford Brown adopted it into his repertoire.
