"...if you haven't picked up every one of the Blue Note and Nat King Cole reissues from Chad Kassem and company at Acoustic Sounds, you're really missing out!" - David W. Robinson, Positive Feedback, Issue 52

Duke Jordan established his credentials as pianist during 1947-48 when he was Charlie Parker's pianist. His composing skills did not emerge until the arrival of hard bop in the mid fifties. Flight To Jordan from August 4, 1960 was his first full album as a leader and features the distinctive frontline of Stanley Turrentine and Dizzy Reece.

Flight of Fancy!

Duke Jordan recorded as a band leader once for Blue Note on this date. He surely did not squander that opportunity as evident on this album. Every track counts, none more so than "Deacon Joe," the blues-drenched gospel piece on side 4 of this LP, so bewitching it makes you want to go to church. According to the liner notes, Jordan claims the inspiration for this song came from music he heard outside a church in Brooklyn. It reminded me of how Miles Davis ( a former band mate of Duke's) wrote in his autobiography that he did not quite capture the gospel feel of church music that he was going for on "Kind Of Blue." Listening to "Deacon Joe" I can now safely say I know what Miles never quite captured on Kind Of Blue.
