Album: Catalyst

Grinders, I know you are wondering why would I give Marqueal Jordan the title; “Candle Light Emotions”, but that’s just how you feel when you are listening to his music – feeling of calling your boo while placing candles (LED candles) all over the house…pouring your favorite beverage dressed in your best if any lounge-wear.

maq1Marqueal has been in the business of seduction by sax since before touring with Brian Culberton for several years. Marqueal has also played with “Spur of the Moment”, locally in the DC area.

Marqueal have a repertoire of sounds: Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, as well as Hip Hop. His diverse ability to captive the audience of any genre is amazing. Listening to Marqueal expression of music, truly attests to a Grinder feeding the love of his craft.

Marqueal Jordan’s saxophone speaks smooth definition of emotions but his voice carries you to whole nother dimension (In my Mississippi English). He has the experience and ability to set your soul at ease, which can only by given by God.

Turn your lights off and dive  into “Catalyst” … I dare you!!!!
