Homer's Music - Nebraska's Best Selection of New, Used CD's, DVD's, and LP's

"Marc Jordan has always been about uncompromising quality. He has a way of not doing the obvious, and that's what makes a great songwriter: you say it or play it differently than everybody else." - David FosterWaiting for the Sun to Rise sees Jordan turning his gaze outward, writing from a place of weathered wisdom. "Rio Grande," is the album's centerpiece, is a hymn to what's left of the world. Squandered potential and abiding hope live side by side, and a soaring solo by Grammy-winning trumpeter Randy Brecker tops off producer Lou Pomanti's arrangement. The stunning "Coltrane Plays the Blues" continues Jordan's penchant for mid-century jazz references. Like his thematic cousin Paul Buchanan of the Blue Nile (whose "The Downtown Lights" is covered here), Jordan sets his stories in an after-hours netherworld populated by lonely lovers and disappointed dreamers. Jordan is a Juno Award and Genie Award winner, and in 2019 was Juno-nominated for his last album Both Sides.
