Stanley Jordan

Next weekend: Stanley Jordan

Coming up fast at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center are concerts by brilliant jazz guitarist Stanley Jordan and Billboard top 10 reggae song maker The Green. Jordan is performing on Sept. 22, a Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

Jordan has received four Grammy nominations. His album “Friends” was nominated for an NAACP Image Award. Los Angeles Times jazz critic Leonard Feather wrote, “Genius is a word often tossed around in musical circles, but it has been rightfully applied to Stanley Jordan.” Jordan’s touch technique allows the guitarist to play melody and chords simultaneously with an unprecedented level of independence. It also allows Jordan to play simultaneously on two different guitars, or even on guitar and piano. Check out his interview about the Friends album and his inclusive approach to jazz.

The Green

The Green at the MACC, Sept. 24

The Green, multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano winners, performs on Sept. 24, a Saturday, at 7 p.m.

They’ve also had three albums that topped the “Billboard” Reggae Album chart, 2011’s “Ways and Means” with four weeks at number one, 2013’s “Hawaii 13”, and 2017’s “Marching Orders,” which stayed in the top 10 for 18 consecutive weeks, regaining the no. 1 spot three separate times. “Marching Orders” was distinguished as the Best Reggae Album at the 2018 Nā Hōkū Hanohano awards. Their sound blends dub-heavy roots reggae, smooth lovers’ rock, contemporary pop and rock with indigenous Hawaiian musical/lyrical references. The band’s most recent album, “Brand New Eyes” was released late last year and a 2022 Nā Hōkū Hanohano nominee.
