ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chicago-based artist, and Los Angeles native, Marqueal Jordan is the rare musician who is blessed with the gift of being equally proficient as an instrumentalist and a vocalist. His distinctive saxophone tone and style, combined with his soulful vocals, places him in the tradition of legendary dual talents, George Benson, Donny Hathaway and Ronnie Laws.

Described by fellow saxophonist Mike Phillips as “one of the most versatile saxophonists in the game today”, Marqueal (pronounced Mar-KWELL) earned his reputation as an electrifying live performer after moving to Chicago in 1995. He was the front man for the Chicago-based funk unit, Fat Time, and became an integral member in numerous Jazz, R&B and Blues bands in the city. In 2008, Smooth Jazz star Brian Culbertson asked Marqueal to join his touring band and since then he's captivated audiences around the world with his talents. As a sideman, he’s performed with an amazing list of major artists such as Oleta Adams, Gerald Albright, Patti Austin, Avant, Average White Band, Rick Braun, Peabo Bryson, Jonathan Butler, Stanley Clarke, George Duke, Aretha Franklin, Savion Glover, Larry Graham, Buddy Guy, Lalah Hathaway, Al Jarreau, Earl Klugh, Dave Koz, KRS-ONE, Jeff Lorber, Maysa, Najee, Ray Parker, Jr., Phil Perry, Eric Roberson, David Sanborn, Jill Scott, Sinbad, Gerald Veasley, and Kirk Whalum.

"Catalyst" is Marqueal Jordan's solo debut CD. After years of sideman work and being involved with original bands and projects over the years, "Catalyst" reveals the focused vision and emergence of Jordan as an artist, songwriter and producer.

Chicago-based by way of his home town of L.A., sax man and vocalist Marqueal Jordan (pronounced “mar-KWELL”) can do both with soul and style, putting him in that rare company of artists like George Benson, Donny Hathaway, and Ronnie Laws. Currently touring with Brian Culbertson, CATALYST is Marqueal’s solo debut after years of top-shelf work with noteworthy stars such as Gerald Albright, Patti Austin, AWB, and many more. This stunning release from a veteran artist, songwriter, producer and features production by Chris “Big Dog” Davis, Frank McComb and a guest appearance by Culbertson. Sure to uplift!
