Addison Jordan is a saxophonist, composer and educator from Dallas, TX. Through the lens of jazz, he strives to continue the extemporized tradition of black musical thought starting in the 20th c. seeping towards the contemporary conventions of the current age. "25", his debut solo project released in 2022, serves as a reflection of contemplation through lived experience within a young jazzmans' psyche. The project features the dynamic workings of pianists Kwinton Gray and Rowan Barcham, bassist Max Gerl, drummer Jackie Whitmill and the lyrical vocals of Madison Russell.
The continual pursuit of jazz has led Addison through the esteemed musical programs of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (2011-15), University of North Texas (2015-19), and Northern Illinois University (2019-21), where he received his MM in jazz studies. 
He has played at renowned venues and festivals around the USA with artists like Souris-Jordan Jazz Orchestra, One O'clock Lab Band, Bobby Broom, Charenee Wade, Max Gerl, Red Young, Quincy Davis, Clark Sommers, Kenny Werner,  Brad Leali, Chris Watson, Blaque Dynamite, and Bobby Sparks.
Addison is currently on faculty at Earlham College and Indiana University East teaching various courses within the music curriculum.
