Una Celebración del Leyenda Esteban Jordan y Su Musica

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-07-21
One of SA's most fascinating characters will be honored this Sunday, when Sexto Sol, Piñata Protest, Bombasta, Los Nahuatlatos, Mexican Stepgrandfather, JJ Lopez, and Plata pay tribute to Esteban "Steve" Jordan - a living legend who plays 35 musical instruments and is frequently referred to as the "the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion." Lately, Jordan's health has been less than favorable, and his regular gigs at Saluté aren't so regular anymore (Jordan did play four songs there on Friday night). It's rumored that "El Parche" (a nickname based on the eye-patch Jordan wears) might show up to his own tribute - this week's best reason to keep your finger's firmly crossed.
