Marc Jordan @ Market Hall, Wednesday May 8

A multi-disciplined artist and musician, Marc Jordan never fails to hold an audience in thrall as he mines the very essence of a song. A renowned and prolific songwriter, his works have been covered on a staggering 30-million-plus recordings by artists including Rod Stewart—who secured a worldwide #1 hit with Rhythm of My Heart, Diana Ross, Chicago, Bette Midler, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Cher, Josh Groban, Natalie Cole, Jordan’s wife Amy Sky and many more. The walls of his home studio groan with the weight of awards.

“Marc Jordan knows the importance and impact of a good song, whether it comes from his pen or someone else’s.” Both Sides, his 18th release, is a mix of his own material and standards, such as Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now, Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side, Curtis Mayfield’s People get Ready, and Rolling Stones’ Wild Horses, all of which contributed to the soundtrack of life in the 60s and 70s.

Featuring a stellar group of musicians—Marc Jordan (vocals and guitar), Lou Pomanti (piano), Marc Rogers (bass), Kevan McKenzie (drums) and Mark Lalama (accordion and keyboards)—Both Sides promises “a hypnotic evening of compelling vocals, where the lines between jazz and pop were blurred, and Jordan’s trademark clear, emotional, poetic delivery rendered each song autobiographical.”
