Nov 6th Jordan Officer launches Blue Skies, a collection of Jordan Officer originals as well as songs that have had a special place in Jordan’s life. These songs, originally performed or written by artists ranging from Big Joe Turner and Louis Armstrong to modern greats such as Tom Waits and Bob Dylan are transformed and delivered in Jordan's elegant, blues style. The virtuosity and intensity that were present in Jordan Officer's previous album I'm Free are still very much there but so is the more minimalist tasteful approach that Jordan has been known for in his previous projects, and that earned him a place among the 342 'Great Jazz Guitarists' in the recent book by Scott Yanow, published by Hal Leonard, the biggest publisher of guitar methods and sheet music.
I'm Free, the album and the show which was sold out three nights in a row at the Montreal Jazz Festivalthis summer, has been received with critical acclaim in Canada and abroad. A longtime friend of the Montreal Jazz Festival, guitarist and singer Jordan Officer will be back in Montreal with his trio at l'Astral on November 21st at 8PM accompanied by Sage Reynolds on bass and Alain Bergé on drums. http://spectramusique.com/e_card/jordanofficer_shows/
