Ronny Jordan, a guitarist and leading player in the acid jazz movement of the ’80s and ’90s, has died. He was 51. The guitarist’s death was confirmed on Facebook after Jordan’s siblings set up a page in his honor.
Born Nov. 29, 1962, in London, Jordan rose to prominence due to his standing in a subset of jazz known as acid jazz, which blends its parent genre with elements of soul, disco, hip-hop and funk — though Jordan called his contributions “urban jazz.”
The musician’s career took off with 1992 solo album “The Antidote,” as well as a spot on 1993’s “Guru’s Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1,”. His 2000 album “A Brighter Day” hit No. 10 on Billboard’s Jazz Albums chart, while the song “A Brighter Day,” featuring Mos Def, peaked at No. 20 on Rap Songs.
Later in his career, Jordan’s claim to fame was his 1993 song “The Jackal,” which was lip-synched by actress Allison Janney on the “Six Meetings Before Lunch” episode of “The West Wing” in 2000.
