Ronny Jordan

Ronald Laurence Albert Simpson, known as Ronny Jordan (29 November 1962, London, England - January 2014) was a guitarist at the forefront of the acid jazz movement at the end of the twentieth century. Jordan described his music as “urban jazz,” a blend of jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. He came to prominence after being featured on Guru's Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1, which saw release in 1993.
