Marc Jordan longs for love in her captivating new jazz single and live video The Best Day Of My Life — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
The latest treat from the award-winning veteran singer-songwriter’s most recent album Waiting For The Sun To Rise, Best Day Of My Life is testament to Jordan’s exceptional talent and ability to evolve as an artist. A beautifully poignant and contemplative track about yearning for someone just out of reach, the song captures the desire for connection and recognition.
The song features a warm piano intro enveloped by strings, creating an intimate and inviting atmosphere. Jordan’s soulful vocals infuse the track with raw emotion, and the gentle keys and the subtle percussion create a soothing backdrop that complements the song’s reflective lyrics. The delicate balance of hope and resignation is reflected in a heartfelt solo by Grammy-winning trumpeter Randy Brecker.
Speaking of good days: In a significant milestone of his illustrious career, Jordan was recently inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame in Toronto alongside John Capek, with whom he co-wrote the hit Rhythm of My Heart for Rod Stewart.
“It’s very gratifying to be recognized with and by your peers anywhere in the world,” he said, “but it makes it all the more gratifying to be recognized at home here in Canada — and at the same time as my first and most successful writing partner John Capek, with whom I have worked on and off for almost 50 years.”
Jordan, a native of Brooklyn and son of singer Charles Jordan, spent his formative years in Toronto and began his music career. He has penned songs for and collaborated with a plethora of music legends, including Diana Ross, Chicago, Kansas, Manhattan Transfer, Kenny Loggins, Bette Midler, Natalie Cole, Olivia Newton-John, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Josh Groban, Cher and more. He has been honoured with numerous awards, including ASCAP, Juno, SOCAN and Smooth Jazz awards, and his songs have appeared on over 35 million albums. He has released 16 LPs of his own material.
