Stanley Jordan

Whether it's bold reinventions of classical masterpieces or soulful explorations through pop-rock hits, to blazing straight ahead jazz forays and ultramodern improvisational works—solo or with a group—Stanley Jordan does it. The four-time Grammy nominee has collaborated with a diverse array of artists and is a frequent guest with jam bands. Jordan began his music career at age six, shifted his focus to guitar at age 11 and applied the principles of his classical pianist training to develop his unique "touch technique" for the guitar. He grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and has a B.A. in music from Princeton. He's also a spokesperson for the American Music Therapy Association.
