Sad news. Have collected "Jordu's" music for ages, especially his
recordings on Steeplechase, and find his melodicism nearly
perfect.Those great intros on Bird's records, the touch he brought to
the Stan Getz band, and those tunes he wrote, so singing. Never heard
him live, and only spoke to Shelia Jordan about him briefly. What a
beautiful sounding pianist. Blue Lake Public Radio will feature some
of his music this Sunday evening from 7 to 8 p.m. et. www.bluelake.org
