  Marlon Jordan: Trumpeter Extraordinaire New Orleans-born Marlon Jordan was one of the players called Young Lions of jazz who were signed, recorded and promoted on major record labels in the 1980’s.  Between 1988 and 1997, he recorded three impressive LPs for Columbia: For You Only (named “one of the best albums of the year” by the Washington Post), Learson’s Return, and The Undaunted.  In 1997 he recorded Marlon’s Mode on the Arabesque label. Following the release of his debut album, Marlon took his quintet on the road.  They joined Miles Davis, George Benson, and Wynton Marsalis in a series of JVC Festival dates produced by George Wein in Atlanta, Dallas and other cities.  The quintet also played in some of the country’s top jazz clubs, including the Blue Note, the Ritz, and the Village Vanguard.  They played concerts at venues ranging from New York’s Avery Fisher Hall to a stint in Europe and Japan. Marlon’s latest album, You Don’t Know What Love Is, announces the return of an exceptional trumpeter. In his maturity, he displays clean, boppish lines laced with power on a foundation of encyclopedic knowledge of the entire jazz tradition, from the earliest days to the present.

Nayo Jones
Nayo Jones hails from a family of musicians; she was destined to be in “the business.” As a child Nayo sang and danced her way through life.  She belted out Supreme songs at talent shows in grade school and mimicked Whitney Houston in front of the mirror.  Nayo’s father William “Doc” Jones, a Jazz musician and music educator born and raised in Chicago noticed her musical gift & helped nurture her natural ability from the very beginning. Growing up surrounded by classic jazz and Motown hits Nayo answered her calling at an early age. Nayo wows her crowds and gains loyal fans with her sultry voice and her passion for every performance.  To name just a few of her credits, Nayo debuted at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in 2012, she’s opened for such greats as Chris Botti, Otis & the Temptations, The Whispers & Lakeside.  In addition to performing her own show, currently Nayo performs and tours as a featured vocalist with New Orleans icon, Kermit Ruffins and the Barbeque Swingers.  Though a babe in the music industry she already has the savvy of some of the most classic female artists and has proven to be a force to be reckoned with.
