Ronny Jordon: A Brighter Day

Jazz guitarist Ronny Jordan has been on a musical mission for years – to put the warm, classic sound of a jazz guitar into modern, urban musical settings. On his Grammy-nominated CD, "A Brighter Day," Jordan continues this journey by adding traces of hip-hop backbeats, turntables and rapping to his melody-driven compositions. The result is classy music for both the head and the feet.
