Album release party
for Dave Jordan’s Burning Sage at the Maple Leaf, 10/5

One of the hardest working musicians in New Orleans will be celebrating his fourth solo album at the Maple Leaf Bar on Saturday night. Dave Jordan is a veteran of the New Orleans music scene going back to his days playing bass with the jam band Juice in the 1990s.

Having reinvented himself as an acoustic guitar-playing, emotive singer/songwriter of heartache ballads, country-tinged Americana, and full-throated horn-driven rock, Jordan is fully entrenched in the music scene performing and recording with a wide range of local musicians.

The new album is co-produced by Jeff Watkins, the saxophonist for the New Orleans Suspects and a legend for his stint with James Brown. This album also represents the first time Jordan has recorded with some of the finest musicians of less vintage pedigree. He’s working with young players including drummer David Shirley of Sweet Crude and Cardinal Sons, guitarist Alex Mallet of Sam Price & True Believers, and Lynn Drury and vocalist Mikayla Braun of the Crooked Vines.

The album of seven originals (plus a cover of Neil Young’s “Out On The Weekend”) features horns on five tracks arranged by Jeff Watkins and performed by Watkins, Sage Rouge of Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, Ian Smith, and Jason Parfait.

For the show on Saturday night, Jordan expects special guests including Jeff Watkins and Sage Rouge on saxes to join his regular band, the NIA, which is composed of David Shirley on drums, Will Repholz on bass, Rurik Nunan on violin, and Alex Mallet on guitar.

Show time is 11 PM. Tickets are available at the door.
