Award-winning and prolific Canadian singer/songwriter Marc Jordan will unleash a newly minted collection of chilled out romantic contemporary jazz arrangements of popular songs by some of his favourite composers, along with previously unreleased original Marc Jordan compositions.
BOTH SIDES, Jordan’s first new solo album in six years, is set for release on April 5th via Linus Entertainment.
Recorded with the Prague Symphony, and featuring Randy Brecker, Lou Pomanti, Marc Rogers, Kevan McKenzie, and Mark Lalama, BOTH SIDES is a tour de force into Jordan’s coveted contact list and dynamic skill set.
The nine track release takes a page from the classic American songbook and features hits like “The Nearness of You” and “What Are You Doing The Rest of Your Life” sprinkled amongst Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” and Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side.”
Both cool and modern, BOTH SIDES features some of Jordan’s best vocal performance.
With numerous ASCAP, JUNO, SOCAN and Smooth Jazz awards to his credit, Jordan’s work has appeared on some 35 million+ CDs. He’s written for and with Diana Ross, Chicago, Kansas, Manhattan Transfer, Kenny Loggins, Amanda Marshal, Bette Midler, Natalie Cole, Roch Voisine, Canadian Tenors, Shawn Colvin, Olivia Newton-John, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Josh Groban, Cher, Rod Stewart — including the #1 hit, “Rhythm of My Heart” and currently for Stewart’s upcoming album — and wife, singer/songwriter Amy Sky.
