"I am excited to have the opportunity to take residency at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans to present my music. With a dearth of venues where America's most original art form can be displayed, the Hyatt is to be commended for helping to keep this music form alive", said Jordan.
"Jazz is New Orleans gift to the world, and I am grateful that Jazz Live Hyatt allows the opportunity for guests and locals to enjoy that music in such a glamorous setting" adds Jordan.
Dubbed "Lady Jazz!" by Audix Microphones, Jordan is consistently praised for her poise, elegance and soulful articulation. Jazz critic Sandy Ingram says "She's a singer with poise and pizzazz, with a voice and an appealing look that bring to mind Carmen McRae and Lena Horne." Stephanie's lyrical style has also been compared to her mentor Shirley Horn, and that of Diana Krall while other critics say it's more like living legend Nancy Wilson.
All About Jazz writes, "Her (Stephanie Jordan) tone is crisp, perfect, but not in that polished way that sounds like an opera singer attempting jazz. She is more like a master of technique, yet with plenty of soul."
Stephanie has performed worldwide including the Kennedy Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marian's Jazzroom in Bern Switzerland, Duke Ellington Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C., and in the presence of the President and First Lady Michelle Obama at the Washington Convention Center. Jordan sang at the inaugural International Jazz Day presented by UNESCO which was celebrated by millions worldwide. Just as she had a decade ago at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Stephanie Jordan Big helped frame the moment of the evening at "The Power of Community: Katrina 10 Commemoration" with her performance of classic tune "Home" from the Broadway musical "The Wiz" during the commemoration".
Recognized internationally, the Sud Ouest French publication calls her "unbelievably superb." The Washingtonian Magazine labeled her "JAZZHOT."
