Info:

In a career that took flight in 1985 with commercial and critical acclaim, guitar virtuoso Stanley Jordan has consistently displayed a chameleonic musical persona of openness, imagination, versatility and maverick daring. Be it bold reinventions of classical masterpieces or soulful explorations through pop-rock hits, to blazing straight ahead jazz forays and ultramodern improvisational workssolo or with a groupJordan can always be counted on to take listeners on breathless journeys into the unexpected.
 
Key to Jordans fast-track acclaim was his mastery of a special technique on the guitars fretboard. Instead of conventional strumming and picking, Jordan’s innovative “touch technique” is an advanced form of two-handed tapping. While a handful of other players were using similar techniques, Stanleys fluid, multi-layered textures and sheer virtuosity raised the bar for excellence. But his technique, though impressive, is always a means to a musical end. His music is imbued with a warmth and sensitivity that has captured the imagination of listeners worldwide. A classically trained pianist before playing guitar, Jordan wanted greater freedom in voicing chords on his guitar, so he applied piano principles to do so. Jordan’s touch technique allows the guitarist to play melody and chords simultaneously with an unprecedented level of independence. It also allows Jordan to play simultaneously on two different guitars, or even on guitar and piano. He says that I think of it as a single instrument, but one with a wide range of tonal colorsthats why I do it.

Bluegrass/Hip-Hop may sound like an odd combination, but dont tell that to Producer Rench, who conceived the sound of Gangstagrass in 2006. Though it began as an isolated experiment, Gangstagrass has since grown into a critically acclaimed success celebrated by The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, TVGuide, Elmore Leonard, NPR.org, and more than 50,000 fans who have been entranced by one of the bands hundreds of performances and have purchased the bands four official LPs.
  
There are a lot more people out there with Jay-Z and Johnny Cash on their iPod playlists than you think. says Rench, who had previously made a name for himself as an in-demand Brooklyn country and hip-hop producer, and solo artist.
  
When he shared his first bluegrass/hip-hop experiment, Rench Presents: Gangstagrass for free on the internet, the buzz occurred instantly and unexpectedly. Renchs unique vision combined hip-hop MCs and beats in sync with banjos, fiddles, and dobros, and made the combination feel seamless, natural, and authentic. As a consequence, Rench Presents: Gangstagrass received hundreds of thousands of downloads and blog features including BoingBoing.net.
  
But it was one phone call that would convince the young mastermind to continue his experiments with a more fervent focus and passion. It came from the FX network who upon listening to Gangstagrass, commissioned Rench to write the theme song to a new show, Justified.
