Steve Jordan...

Jordan was a teenager when he first played in Stevie Wonder's band. Later, he played drums for the Saturday Night Live band in the 1970s. When John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd toured as The Blues Brothers in the early 1980s, Jordan was their drummer, and recorded on their resulting album.

Jordan, along with fellow Shaffer alumnus Anton Fig, appeared on the Rolling Stones' 1986 release Dirty Work.

Steve Jordan is a member of the John Mayer Trio, a blues rock power trio that consists of Jordan, on drums and backing vocals, bassist Pino Palladino and guitarist-singer John Mayer. The group was formed in 2005 by Mayer as a deviation from his pop-acoustic career. The trio released the record Try! on November 22, 2005. The eleven-track live album includes cover songs, such as Jimi Hendrix's "Wait Until Tomorrow" and "I Got A Woman". The trio also performed on December 8, 2007, in Los Angeles, California at the L.A. Live Nokia Theatre for the 1st Annual Holiday Charity Revue, which raised funds for various Los Angeles related charities. The DVD/CD release, entitled Where the Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles features Palladino on bass and Jordan on drums.

Jordan would later collaborate with Mayer and Charlie Hunter by writing "In Repair," the eleventh track from Mayer's 2006 album Continuum. Jordan also contributed to Mayer's album, "Battle Studies".

Steve Jordan recorded with such artists as Don Henley, John Mellencamp, Andres Calamaro, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, Sonny Rollins, BB King, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Neil Young, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and many more. He is featured on James Taylor's 1998 DVD, Live at the Beacon Theatre.

Jordan has evolved into a Grammy Award-winning and nominated producer with Robert Cray's album Take Your Shoes Off and Buddy Guy's Bring 'Em In, respectively. While he has played on countless records, from Alicia Keys "If I Ain't Got You" to Bruce Springsteen's Devils and Dust, he continues to produce with such works as the Grammy Award winning John Mayer album Continuum, John Scofield's That's What I Say, Possibilities by Herbie Hancock, and 23rd St. Lullaby with Patti Scialfa.

In 2006, Jordan joined Eric Clapton's hand-picked touring band for Clapton's "European Tour 2006", which included seven sold out shows at the Royal Albert Hall. He continued in Clapton's band as they toured North America in 2007.

In 2008, Jordan produced and played percussion on one track for Los Lonely Boys' third album, Forgiven, at East Side Stages in Austin, Texas.

In 2009, Jordan received another Grammy Award nomination - the Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media, for his work on the soundtrack scoring film for the movie Cadillac Records.

Jordan formed a band with his wife, Meegan Voss, and they have toured and recorded under the band name The Verbs. The music has been described as "The perfect cocktail of girl group, Brit-pop, country, ska and Rock and Roll. They toured Japan in 2006 in support of their first release, And Now... The Verbs. As in their previous release, this album features Tamio Okuda on lead guitars, Pino Palladino on bass and additional classic guitar work by Danny "Kootch" Kortchmar.
















Like A Fire features songs written specifically for the GRAMMY®-winning King of Rock 'n' Soul by an all-star group of songwriters, including Eric Clapton. Eric Clapton wrote the title track and co-wrote "Thank You" with Solomon. Like A Fire was produced by Steve Jordan.


One of the best recorded Drums and Drumsolo ever...make sure to take time for listening from start to finish. Paralleling Khan's masterful guitar work, it is noted by Khan that bass and drumming enthusiasts cite this as the record to get of the trio's '80s releases: "CASA LOCO" is really the recording most bassists and drummers point to as the one you've got to have.....the performances of Anthony Jackson and Steve Jordan here are just incredible.
