A five-time Grammy nominee, guitar hero Robben Ford is the real deal -- a blues-jazz guitar giant who's played and toured with such musical masters as Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis, George Harrison, Dizzy Gillespie, Bonnie Raitt and many more. He's released dozens of solo albums of blues and jazz, and is a featured sideman on numerous others. In fact, "Musician" magazine named him one of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of the 20th Century." Jazz fusion guitar legend and multiple Grammy nominee Stanley Jordan also lends his virtuosic skills and smooth rhythms to this special concert. Famed for his unique finger-tap technique, Jordan's 1985 debut album "Magic Touch" topped the "Billboard" jazz charts for nearly a year, and he's since released more than a dozen albums, played prestigious festivals and collaborated with a wide variety of international artists including violinist Regina Carter, sax man Kenny Garrett, trumpeter Nicholas Payton and more. Catch both of these world-class musicians in concert at The Rose in Pasadena.
