A New Orleans native, Jordan is one of an infinite number of prolific musicians that swells from within the concrete jungle of the Crescent City. Although often regarded as a fusion musician, he is an assertive, cogent player of modern jazz as well, particularly on alto flute. Jordan studied at the New Orleans' Center for the Creative Arts where he was inspired by jazz patriarch, Ellis Marsalis, then completed his education at the Eastman School of Music.

Jordan presently heads the music department at Lusher Charter School, an arts intensive program in New Orleans, as well as serving as an instructor at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage School of Music. He also teaches the big band and flute curriculums at the Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong Summer Jazz Camp
