Marlon Jordan—Young Lion of Jazz Returns!

You Don’t Know What Love Is

Marlon Jordan featuring Stephanie Jordan

New Orleans Young Lion of Jazz, trumpeter Marlon Jordan returns to national prominence, once again, with the release of his long anticipated Classic Jazz album You Don’t Know What Love Is on Louisiana Red Hot Records. The album features Marlon’s Miles Davis-comes-to-New Orleans muting and his sister Stephanie Jordan on breathtaking, silvery vocals on five (5) of the albums eight tracks.

Marlon Jordan is the youngest New Orleans Band Leader ever signed by a major record label - only 17 when signed with Columbia Records! You Don’t Know What Love Is also marks the first collaboration of one America’s great Jazz families. Marlon is joined here by patriarch Kidd Jordan, saxophonist and Southern University Jazz Director; sister Stephanie, winner of the “Billie Holiday Competition” for Jazz vocalist; sister Rachel, violinist with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra; and three-album Columbia recording artist and internationally touted flautist, brother Kent Jordan.

 Marlon Jordan release of You Don’t Know What Love Is follows years of touring and three albums with Columbia Records, and one on Arabesque and a lengthy Brazilian odyssey.  The Columbia label included the likes of New Orleans’ Wynton, Bradford and Delfeayo Marsalis, Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Kent Jordan and Harry Connick, Jr. on the powerhouse Dr. George Butler Columbia Jazz roster.  Jordan’s first Columbia venture was opening for Miles Davis in Japan.  Later he starred in George Wein’s brilliantly-conceived supergroup of “Young Lions,” which included Roy Hargrove and Mark Whitfield, touring virtually every major Jazz festival and outdoor shed in the U.S.

 Marlon Jordan has been called “The best trumpeter of his generation.”  You can hear Jordan’s clean, boppish lines laced with power, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the entire jazz trumpet tradition, signed in his own unique sonic signature.
