Younger brother of flutist Kent Jordan as well as the son of avant-garde saxophonist Kidd Jordan, Marlon Jordan gained significant amounts of attention early in his career, recording being a leader for Columbia when he was 19, before he previously a genuine sound of his own. He began playing trumpet in the 4th grade and understood Wynton Marsalis (a significant impact) and Terence Blanchard when he was a kid. Jordan was a highlighted soloist with the brand new Orleans Symphony when he was 15, examined on the now-legendary New Orleans Middle for Innovative Arts, and documented being a sideman along with his sibling Kent (1987) and Dennis Gonzalez (1988). He cut three albums being a head for Columbia, toured with Jazz Futures (1991) alongside Roy Hargrove, and demonstrated potential. Whether he’ll someday turn into a jazz large isn’t known, but Marlon Jordan certainly gets the technical abilities, if not really the musical personality.
