Prime Example Jazz Club and WWOZ present Stephanie Jordan Friday After Jazz Fest
(Published: April 29, 2015)

Friday, May 1 @ 8:00 and 10:00 PM

NEW ORLEANS - WWOZ and Prime Example Jazz Club present the Stephanie Jordan Jazz Ensemble for two dinner shows on Friday, May 1, 2015 at 8:00 and 10:00 PM in one of New Orleans' most intimate lounge settings. Julius Kimbrough's Prime Example Jazz Club is located at 1909 North Broad Street, New Orleans, LA 70119.

Jordan's April 30th 2015 Jazz Fest performance falls on International Jazz Day and as such, Stephanie will cover Billy Strayhorn's Lush Life during her performance in honor of the Strayhorn Centennial celebrations taking place around the globe. She will bring highlights of that performance to the Prime Example show.

The Washington Post boasts of her Kennedy Center performance, "A poised, soulfully articulate vocalist, Jordan turned in a performance that warmly evoked the influence of Abbey Lincoln, Shirley Horn, Carmen McRae and other jazz greats."


Following her performance with the Chicago Jazz Ensemble, Chicago Tribune's leading art critic Howard Reich wrote, "The woman can sing and indisputably knows how to reach out across the footlights . . . bringing heft to music of the Gershwins and Cole Porter without pushing volume levels. Clearly she values plush sound and knows how to produce it." Music critic James Walker added, "Stephanie Jordan . . . stepped in and simply mesmerized the near capacity Harris Theater crowd with a sparkling performance that surely put her in good stead with the astute Chicago audience. . . . "

Bill Milkowski of JazzTimes Magazine writes of her Jazz at Lincoln Center performance; "Stephanie Jordan, a standout here, was the real discovery of the evening. Her haunting rendition of (Here's To Life) this bittersweet ode associated with Shirley Horn was delivered with uncanny poise and a depth of understated soul that mesmerized the crowd and registered to the back rows. Singing with clarity of diction that recalled Nat "King" Cole . . ."

Jazz at Lincoln Center notes, "every so often a new voice stands up and proclaims itself, but few do so with such supreme depth and understated soul."

Stephanie Jordan has had the honor of singing for Vice President Joe Biden and US Senator Mary Landrieu as well as being selected by the National Urban League to sing to Stevie Wonder during NUL's 2012 National Conference. Jordan also performed at the private celebration ‘Oprah Winfrey and Friends of Susan Taylor' at New York City's ESPACE in honor of Susan Taylor's 37 years of service to Essence magazine.

Admission is $20. Reservation for this show is highly recommended. For more information contact the club at 504-944-0940 or via email at primeexamplejazz@yahoo.com.
