    That's crazy. What's Stanley Jordan doing these days? I haven't seen him on TV or anything for a long time.

    He was posting on a jazz thread in Sound Hound Lounge. He's still out there making music.

    True, every guitarist can tap on an appropriately set up guitar, but he comes up with some great lines that I'm guessing would not be easily reproduced by just anybody on the planet.

    His planet. As in, he's clearly not from this one.

    I remember seeing a killer version of All Blues on youtube with him playing piano and guitar simultaneously. Clearly from another planet!

    Stanley is awesome, but that bass player is a hack. I mean playing only one bass at a time, and that drummer too, slacker...:rotflmao

    Obscurity? He was on Letterman, and has been nominated for a Grammy four times. I wouldn't call that obscurity.

    Walk down the street. Ask the first ten people you meet if they have heard of

    a.) Lady Gaga
    b.) Katy Perry
    c.) Stanley Jordan

    Let me know how that comes out.
