Default Re: Steve Jordan

Yes… Steve Jordan is one of my all-time favorite drummers. If you want to blow your mind.. check out the work he did on the Blues Brothers double CD greatest hits. It was a musical-comedy band - prompting some to think they were a joke - but the band was a monster collection of musical heavyweights. Listen closely to what he plays on the collection - it's a master class in composition, innovative musical fills, superb technique and shuffles.. in short the total package of what exciting drumming is all about. There are several passages where it sounds like he has 4 arms (riding the cymbal, shuffling the snare, riding an open/close hi-hat all at the same time).. or playing really fast ghosted 16ths on the snare. The Blues Brothers were no joke.. they were a killer band.
