Kidd Jordan keeps going strong as he nears 80, as evidenced by this free trio release with drummer Warren Smith and bassist Harrison Bankhead, which Engine refers to as "acoustic punk music" with a bit of blues and New Orleans voodoo.
 

Jordan, Kidd
On Fire

Jordan, Kidd : On Fire (Engine)
Label: Engine    
Released in: USA    


"Kidd Jordan talked about overcoming health problems as well as coming out of a gig and encountering a Ku Klux Klan rally; Warren Smith talked about going to a sandwich shop in Illinois with some college friends and being told he couldn't eat inside with the white folks. This is not political music, but there is a defiance to the playing that comes out of those experiences and playing against the musical mainstream. Kidd told me someone once yelled at him at a show 'take that man's horn away and give him a piece of chicken.'

For me, this is acoustic punk music by a trio with two almost 80-year olds. In addition to waving the freak flag, there is the blues and New Orleans voodoo, and there is a lot of intelligence, humor, and awareness between the players.

We live in super conservative (political and cultural) time and raising a virtuosic middle finger salute to all the squares is a reasonable, time honored response. Recorded on a vintage Neve console in one of Brooklyn's best sounding rooms, kick back and feel the energy of this music.

Kidd Jordan is an uncompromising player with a wild streak and great openness. The record is called 'On Fire' for a reason."-Engine
