Marfa Dialogues

Esteban Jordan

29 May 2009


“A long-haired pachuco hipster who wore a snakeskin eye patch and puffy pirate sleeves, [Esteban] Jordan began making a name for himself in the sixties, when he pushed the limits of his instrument by using phase shifters, fuzzboxes, and Echoplex effects. Known for juxtaposing blues, jazz, Latin rhythms, zydeco, country, rock, and pop with traditional polkas, cumbias, and waltzes, Jordan earned a Grammy nomination in 1987 and was widely hailed as the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion.”

— from the Texas Monthly article, “The Apprentice,” by Katy Vine, June 2011
