Marc Jordan, Waiting for the Sun to Rise.
This 15th album from Toronto-based Marc Jordan is a moody pop gem that weds his sublime vocals to gorgeous arrangements for piano and orchestra by producer Lou Pomanti. The material is as good as its presentation: it includes a few well-chosen covers, such as Jimmy Webb’s “The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress” and Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” but love songs co-written by Jordan predominate, among them the exquisite title cut and the jazzy “Coltrane Plays the Blues.” By Jeff Burger

"I’m not sure whether there is a more sensual male voice out there than the one of Canadian ace Marc Jordan. He’s like a modern Frank Sinatra but also with a vibe of both Al Jarreau and Leonard Cohen… Simply amazing. This man is able to deliver soft jazz in a way that few can master. All in all, lovely to hear another album by this hero! And Marc still sings like a God." - By Ola Gränshagen melodic.net

"Marc and producer Lou Pomanti have crafted a beautiful collection of songs that give warmth, comfort, and entertain the best way possible - through great music." - Paul Power
"This is the kind of voice and delivery I am always looking for in a singer. Marc Jordan is honest and emotional, because he’s telling believable stories. Marc Jordan is an artist that is relatable. This was a touching and beautiful album full of truth and human feeling... an album that showcases well-written songs, strong arrangements, relatable lyrics and a vocal that touches the spirit." - Dee Dee McNeil
“Yet another shining example not only of Jordan’s gifts as a poet, composer and musician, but also of his ineffable taste and understanding of the essential need for human communication through the arts.” – Lesley Mitchell-Clark, Wholenote
“As the singer wishes life could be longer, the strings elevate him and the listener to a higher and wider view. When the orchestra launches Brecker into a gently triumphant [trumpet] solo, reminiscent of his sublime reverb-soaked turn on Springsteen’s “Across the River,” it’s almost too beautiful to stand.” – Allen Michie, Artsfuze
“Now that Leonard Cohen and Gordon Lightfoot are no longer with us, the unofficial mantle of Canadian poet laureate singer-songwriter transfers nicely now to famed Juno and Genie Award winner Marc Jordan.” -- Jonathan Widran, JWVibe
