Born in Detroit, MI in 1978 music was always a continuous presence in Jordan's upbringing. His earliest musical influences came from his mother's vast record collection, which included classical, jazz and classic rock. He began to play drums at age ten, immediately falling in love with the instrument. As soon as he was good enough, he started playing in local rock, punk and heavy metal bands. His first experience playing jazz was in high school jazz band, where he was first chair all four years. His exposure to a variety styles at an early age helped him to become the versatile and creative musician he is today.

Eventually, Jordan attended the Jazz Studies Program at The University of Michigan, where he refined his drumming and compositional skills. In Ann Arbor, he was consistently sought out to perform with local groups with styles ranging from jazz to pop to avant-garde. Simultaneously, he was hanging at more jam sessions in the Metro-Detroit Area, which led to gigs with Detroit jazz legends Donald Walden, Marcus Belgrave, Teddy Harris, Jr., James Carter, and Rodney Whitaker. Meanwhile, at the University of Michigan, Jordan was taken under the wing of world-renowned drummer and composer, Gerald W. Cleaver. Studying with Gerald, Jordan really began to dig deep into world of jazz drumming, absorbing himself in the music of master drummers like Art Blakey, Jimmy Cobb, and "Philly" Joe Jones. During the five years Jordan spent at Michigan he dedicated himself to this music: practicing, playing and gigging as much as humanly possible.

Upon encouragement from his mentors, Jordan moved to New York City to become an active part of the NYC jazz scene. As soon as he arrived, he began studying with world class educator John Riley, earning his masters from Manhattan School of Music. Currently, Jordan resides in Brooklyn, NY. He currently works as a sideman and leads his own groups at many renowned New York City jazz clubs and venues such as Smoke, Smalls, Cleopatra's Needle, Arturo's, Fat Cat, and Carnegie Hall. He is currently on faculty at The Music School of Westchester. He also maintains an active private teaching studio. Since moving to New York City Jordan has played with such jazz luminaries as Harry Whitaker, Javon jackson, Steve Nelson, Steve Wilson, Donald Brown, Kenny Baron, Rodney Jones, Ed Cherry and Peter Bernstein to name a few. He has led a steady gig twice a week with a few different groups at Authentic Bar B Flat in TribeCa. His group performs there on Monday and Wednesday nights.

Jordan's performance engagements with the The Juilliard School's Artist Diploma ensemble will begin in the fall of 2013.










CD discoveries of the week. One of the best organ trio albums I've heard in a while is by drummer Jordan Young's Cymbal Melodies (Posi-Tone). Too many albums of this sort are overly moody or too candy pop. This oneis just rightеpbeat, groovy and melodic. And there are superb tracks here: By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, Lee Morgan's Free Wheelin' and Grant Green's Grantstand as well as originals and other standards. Backing Young are Brian Charette on organ, Avi Rothbard on guitar and Joe Sucato on saxophone. Shades of the Mighty Burner, organist Charles Earland.Marc MyersJazz Wax

I have to admit when I first saw the tune selection on this disc I wondered how in the world Jordan Young could pull it off. You have a hard bop tune from Lee Morgan along with some more classic covers from Grant Green and Irving Berlin and mixed in you see some more older popular standards from Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Webb and Sting.

Life is easy, people make it hard. Same goes for music.

Jordan Young's Cymbal Melodies streets on Sept. 11th 2012 and given the variety of tunes served up the transitions are seamless and obvious potential pitfalls are easily avoided. The key to any good tune is melody. There is what I consider a predominant school of thought among some younger musicians that hanging out in odd meter and the speed is king mentality is a sure ticket for jazz stardom.Brent BlackCritical Jazz

JORDAN YOUNG/Cymbal Melodies: It might be a drummer led session but organist Brain Charette grabs hold of the opening track тy the Time I get to PhoenixѠ and gives it a going over like this is his session. Once again, Young is behind one of the best organ jazz dates of the year of itԳ release and if you donԴ have this within easy reach any time youԲe stuck in traffic, the delay is going to seem a lot longer than it is. Smooth, wonderful stuff that kicks ass when and where you least expect. Check it out.Chris SpectorMidwest Record
I said last year that Jordan Young had great skill as a leader as well as performer. His group is solid and concise.

Making the jump from his independent self-titled debut to the perfect home of Posi-Tone Records, Jordan Young delivers his newest release, Cymbal Melodies. And it is just as pronounced and confident as his debut. A strong step forward.

The two opening numbers, "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" and "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" are killer. Jordan turns "Raindrops..." into a real barn-burning. It's smokin' and really fun. You almost don't recognize it thanks to some crafty and infectious work by Charette and Rothbard. But Young's kit sounds explosive throughout. "...Phoenix" is midtempo with a groovy melody that is set with some clever and understated timing by Young. This while Charette and Rothbard give the tune a real sense of emotional structure.

"Bird Bath" is sneaky in its structure thanks to Charette's hip crunchy styling. The dialogue between Young and Charette (longtime bandmates) is superb. "Mood For McCann" is a funky number where Young unleashes Sucato and Rothbard to exchange some fierce lines that are quite soulful; they might have you reminiscing for Jack McDuff and Grant Green.

With Cymbal Melodies , Jordan Young reaches the next level in what looks to be a sparkling career. Posi-Tone was the perfect choice for this release, fitting nicely with the label's current stable of artists. But more importantly, a great number of people will and should get to hear an artist who is quickly finding his voice as a composer and performer. Cymbal Melodies is a solid must listen.Stephan MooreJazz Wrap

A few years ago Pat Metheny made a solo guitar ѣoversѠrecord WhatԳ It All About, a record I adore as much for the melodies he picked as how he nursed them. In discussing the idea behind the album. Metheny said,

I was born in 1954 and all of these songs were songs from the Top 40 during my childhood and early teen years. It was a period when harmony and melody were still important and viable elements in popular music. Every one of these songs has something going on that is just hip on musical level, no matter how you cut it. These are all pieces that have stuck with me over the years.

This was truly a golden era of the pop songwriter, and one of the most successful songwriter teams, because they were one of the best, was melody maker Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David. Metheny did in fact cover one of their famous songs, сlfie,Ѡbut any of another of their hits could have fit on that collection: єhe Look of Love,Ѡїalk On By,Ѡуlose To You,Ѡсlways Something There To Remind Me,Ѡфo You Know The Way To San Jose,Ѡand so on.

From the time of Tin Pan Alley, good melodies have made great fodder for jazz musicians, and one particular jazz drummer from Detroit recently tapped the Bacharach/David mother lode for his upcoming second release Cymbal Melodies. ђaindrops Keep FallinӠOn My Head,Ѡthe 1969, Oscar-winning chart topper as sung by B.J. Thomas, is handled in a creative way by Young and his band.S. Victor AaronSomething Else

Jordan Young is a drummer leading a group on this recording that features Brian Charette on organ, Avi Rothbard on guitar and Joe Sucato on tenor saxophone. Young is a subtle drummer, using shades of texture and nuance instead of dramatic loud playing. The album is a very solid mainstream jazz session melding pop music, the earworm melody of ђaindrops Keep Falling on My HeadѠwhich flirts with cheese but never quite succumbs and ђoxanneѠwhich is played a seductive and slithering funk, weaving in and out of the song, developing a nice feature for Sucato.Tim NilandMusic and More

On their self-titled debut. New York-based Jordan Young and his group go through a mix of different sounds, from a straight-ahead Hammond-based version of Cole Porter's "Every Time We Say Goodbye" to the more experimental "PinGs"—four short interludes spread throughout the disc that hint at the band's desire to tackle contemporary material while still keeping their admitted 1960s organ trio vibeErnest BarteldesAll About Jazz

Organ albums have always been the comfort food of jazz. Buying one of the classics from the fifties and sixties, the line-up is almost certain (guitar and/or sax, drums, never a bass), and a bunch of songs that would satisfy some primal need for deep, funky grooves. However, this predictability ensured that a lot of them were pretty interchangeable, and after buying three or four of them it became apparent that there probably wasn't a need for any more. But just at the time when it seemed like the format had grown stale, there was a guy like Larry Young, working the fringes, and proving that the blues, and song titles laden with apostrophes were not all that the organ could offerDavid RikertAll About Jazz
