“Remembering Edward “Kidd” Jordan”
“New Orleans, LA (April 7, 2023) – It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of a true legend, Edward “Kidd” Jordan, who left us today. All of us at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Foundation and the Don “Moose” Jamison Heritage School of Music join the global jazz community in expressing our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and fans.
Born on May 5, 1935, in Crowley, Louisiana, Jordan was a musical prodigy who started playing saxophone at a young age. He honed his skills in the vibrant music scene of New Orleans, where he became a prominent figure in the avant-garde jazz movement. His innovative approach to improvisation and his ability to blend different styles of music, including free jazz, bebop, and blues, earned him critical acclaim and a dedicated following.” ……..
