During the COVID pandemic that shut down Smalls and Mezzrow in NYC from March of 2020 through April of 2021, they relied exclusively on funds raised by their not-for-profit, The SmallsLIVE Foundation. It was short of miraculous, but a world-wide support network of jazz fans and musicians came together and kept them alive with donations and support. They raised more than what was needed, and these extra funds became the budget for their "SmallsLIVE Living Masters Series". This is part life-time achievement award and part recording document. The idea is to document the work of older artists that have had a lifetime in jazz music and a connection to their clubs.

Sheila Jordan, along with her bandmates Alan Broadbent and Harvie S, is not just short of miraculous but actually miraculous. At age 93, she delivers a vociferous performance of standards and bebop. She literally glows with the resonant age of her accomplishments and associations. She prides herself on her friendship with Charlie Parker and speaks often of him. She has the core vibration of the true Detroit sound and hails from the very greatest period of that music. Her fellow Detroiters, such as Barry Harris, Hank Jones, Tommy Flannagan and others have all but left us but she is still here and still vibrant. Sheila still has that vibe and that deep warmth that only a mature spirits can communicate and share. People respond to Sheila with love and gratitude and bask in her modest yet authoritative demeanor.

It is a great privilege for Cellar Music Group to present Sheila Jordan - Live Mezzrow - in partnership with the SmallsLIVE Living Masters Series. She's in an element that she knows best (a crowded and intimate club) and is with musicians she trusts the most. We hope this document can provide you an insight into her work and her depth. Sheila Jordan is the debut of our SmallsLIVE Living Master's Series and we can't think of a better representative.

Press Quotes

Every Sheila Jordan recording is special, for the singer is quite unique and puts plenty of feeling and creativity into each performance.

     —Scott Yanow, AllMusic.com

Calling Sheila Jordan a singer is--to use a proverbial comparison--a bit like calling 'Great Expectations' a book. ...Jordan's program of jazz vocal improvisations pulsed and throbbed with layered emotional density.

     —Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

A pioneer in the area of bebop and an artist who can swing with the best of them, Jordan's commanding voice handles the melodies splendidly, and the soulfulness of her craft certainly hasn't waned in her 7 decade career

     —Tom Haughen, Take Effect Reviews

This release is to be celebrated and not judged

     —C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

Time has understandably weathered Jordan's distinctive voice. But it certainly hasn't lessened her interpretive ingenuity or her emotive prowess

     —John Murph, Downbeat

it is Jordan's off-the-cuff remarks, with her frank humor and ever-present warmth, that make you want to lean into the record

     —Suzanne Lorge, New York City Jazz Record
