Already known as a world-class guitarist, State of Nature also marks Stanley’s return to piano. Mastering two instruments creating one unique sound, proves that Stanley Jordan definitely marches to the beat of his own drum. Never one to be locked into constraints, Stanley has also taken the profound task of using this new CD to aurally tackle pertinent themes including environmental issues and man’s relationship to nature and humankind.
Stanley Jordan first came to prominence with the release of his 1985 Grammy nominated debut album Magic Touch, a revolutionary project that helped to re-launch the legendary Blue Note Records into a contemporary entity in jazz and beyond. Key to Jordan's fast-track acclaim was his mastery of a special "tapping" technique. This method uses “touches & taps” on the guitar's board instead of conventional strumming and picking. While a handful of other virtuoso players use similar techniques, Stanley's fluid and melodic use of tapping captures the imagination of listeners through his inherent warmth and sensitivity.
