Kidd Jordan Interview

Master improvisers can turn on a dime. So, when keyboardist Darrell Lavigne called Kidd Jordan in early March to set up a recording session while he was in New Orleans, the elder saxophonist sprang into action.

Joined by Jordan’s son Marlon on trumpet, Mark Lomax on drums and Eddie Bayard on saxophone, the quintet convened at McDonogh 35 Senior High School to record Last Trane To New Orleans, an epic live throwdown that’s due out digitally on June 15, and on CD and LP on July 15.
