Biography

An imaginative and gifted pianist, Jordan was a regular member of Charlie Parker's so-called "classic quintet" (1947-48), featuring Miles Davis. He participated in Parker's Dial sessions in late 1947 that produced "Dewey Square," "Bongo Bop," "Bird of Paradise," and the ballad "Embraceable You." These performances are featured on Charlie Parker on Dial.[2]

He had a long solo career from the mid-1950s onwards. After periods accompanying Sonny Stitt and Stan Getz, he performed and recorded in the trio format. His most notable composition, "Jordu," became a jazz standard when trumpeter Clifford Brown adopted it into his repertoire.

From 1978 he was resident in Copenhagen, Denmark, having begun recording an extensive sequence of albums for the Steeplechase label in 1973. Some of his best live recordings are available on Steeplechase or the Japanese Marshmallow label.

From 1952 to 1962 he was married to the jazz singer Sheila Jordan. Their union produced a daughter, Tracey J. Jordan.
