Celebrate International Jazz Day @ Jazz Live Hyatt New Orleans with Stephanie Jordan
(Published: April 23, 2017)

Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29, 2017

NEW ORLEANS - Join Jazz Live at Hyatt on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29, 2017 after the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival as they present Stephanie Jordan in an annual celebration of International Jazz Day at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans. The Friday night performance follows Jordan's appearance at Jazz Fest in the Zatarain's/WWOZ Jazz Tent earlier that day at 3:00 PM.


In 2011, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe. International Jazz Day is chaired and led by Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director General, and legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, who serves as a UNESCO Ambassador for Intercultural Dialogue and Chairman of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz.


"I am excited to have the opportunity to take residency at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans to present my music and I am equally pleased that the Hyatt has agreed to join in the recognition of International Jazz Day. With a dearth of venues where America's most original art form can be displayed, the Hyatt is to be commended for helping to keep this music form alive", said Jordan.


"Jazz is New Orleans gift to the world, and I am grateful that Jazz Live Hyatt allows the opportunity for guests and locals to enjoy that music in such a glamorous setting" adds Jordan.


The Stephanie Jordan Ensemble will do two sets that night at the Hyatt Regency performing jazz standards made popular from the likes of Nancy Wilson, Abbey Lincoln, Dionne Warwick, Nat "King" Cole, Frank Sinatra, and others. Her act also feature select tunes from ‘The Smooth Side of Stephanie Jordan', including the music of Roy Ayers, George Benson, Stevie Wonder and more.


Jazz Live at Hyatt takes place in the 8 Block Kitchen & Bar on Level 3 of the Hyatt Regency, 601 Loyola Ave, New Orleans, LA 70113. Show time is from 7:00 to 10:00 pm. There is no cover charge for the performance and reservations are not required.


Immerse yourself in the best of sophisticated New Orleans nightlife with delicious appetizers, masterfully crafted cocktails, and premium spirits, while enjoying complimentary Live Jazz! Enjoy creative sushi dishes, the freshest Louisiana seafood, or a mouthwatering burger at Vitascope Hall, one of the best NOLA bars for catching up with friends.


Dubbed "Lady Jazz!" by Audix Microphones, Jordan is consistently praised for her poise, elegance and soulful articulation. Jazz critic Sandy Ingram says "She's a singer with poise and pizzazz, with a voice and an appealing look that bring to mind Carmen McRae and Lena Horne." Stephanie's lyrical style has also been compared to her mentor Shirley Horn, and that of Diana Krall while other critics say it's more like living legend Nancy Wilson.


All About Jazz writes, "Her (Stephanie Jordan) tone is crisp, perfect, but not in that polished way that sounds like an opera singer attempting jazz. She is more like a master of technique, yet with plenty of soul."


Stephanie has performed worldwide including the Kennedy Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marian's Jazzroom in Bern Switzerland, Duke Ellington Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C., and in the presence of the President and First Lady Michelle Obama at the Washington Convention Center. Jordan sang at the inaugural International Jazz Day presented by UNESCO which was celebrated by millions worldwide. Just as she had a decade ago at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Stephanie Jordan Big helped frame the moment of the evening at "The Power of Community: Katrina 10 Commemoration" with her performance of classic tune "Home" from the Broadway musical "The Wiz" during the commemoration".


Recognized internationally, the Sud Ouest French publication calls her "unbelievably superb." The Washingtonian Magazine labeled her "JAZZHOT."
