About the album

The impeccably balanced Duets includes four spontaneous arrangements of well-known classics: “Nature Boy,” “Blue in Green,” “Summertime” and “A Child Is Born”; plus interpretations of modern pop songs (Adele’s “Someone Like You” and Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”). This was the all-natural uncalculated result of long philosophical heart to hearts as well as a nine-city tour – over 30 years after Eubanks’ and Jordan’s first meeting in the early ‘80s at New York’s famed jazz-fusion club, The 55 Bar. The supplemental genesis of the pairing resides in their decision to do a short tour, initially playing separate sets with each musician occasionally popping in on the other’s time. Word got back that audiences liked it best in those moments when they played together. Everything changed during a sound check in Texas in April 2013. “We were in an all-wooden church where the acoustics were fantastic,” Eubanks recalls. “We started playing, looked at each other, and felt how easy and nice everything flowed. That exchange created a lot of energy. The show flipped to us starting the show together, playing a couple songs alone, then us back together to close.” Summing up Kevin Eubanks’ and Stanley Jordan’s inaugural Duets recording, Jordan thoughtfully concludes, “This album fills a nice niche because it’s relaxing yet engaging. When you hear Kevin and I play together, it’s all about the music – we’re not competing. I just love the feel of it – it has a real sweetness. People who have a heart and listen from their right hemisphere are really going to love this record as an antidote to the norm.”
