Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Guitarist Stanley Jordan's extensive use of tapping, using each hand independently on the instrument's fret board to create separate parts simultaneously, was a major technical breakthrough for the instrument when he first appeared in the early '80s. He could play the instrument much like a piano, whether mixing lead and rhythm or adding bass lines to chords. The technique has never been more apparent than on this 1986 session of unaccompanied guitar, with Jordan crossing musical boundaries to play songs from both the jazz and pop idioms. The "standards" of the title might as easily refer to technical ones as to Jordan's mixed repertoire. His playing here is often simply dazzling; the ease and fluent invention of his runs would still be impressive if another guitarist were supplying the accompaniments. But there's real warmth, too, on "Georgia on My Mind" and "Silent Night." --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime! March 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jordan is technically outstanding. But his virtuosity doesn't get in the way of the genuine musicality of his playing. The sound is warm and amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful June 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Stanley Jordan is by far the most technically sophisticated jazz musician I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Although this is one of his older efforts its musicality easily matches its beautiful complexity. You need to listen to this CD a couple of times before you can truly appreciate everything that you hear. His version of "Silent Night" will have you asking "Is that what I think it is?" and then when you realize it is your next comment is "OMG it's amazing"!!
