Welcome to the website of STEPHEN GORDON, a native of The Queen City, Charlotte, NC!!!  With so many projects in the works and current projects going full steam ahead, I am pleased to share my path with all of you, here on this beautiful platform!  Both as a drummer and pianist, I have had the absolute pleasure of performing, touring, recording, composing and arranging for some of the greatest musicians and composers of American Music!  While Swing has always and will always be my first love, it has prepared me to venture into so many domains of indigenous music from across the globe!  I have had the pleasure to work with musicians such as the late great master of piano and song, Ellis Marsalis, organist Joey DeFrancesco, saxophonist Donald Harrison, Jr., The famous 70's funk masters, The Headhunters - which included the original members - percussionist Bill Summers and drummer Mike Clark, trumpeter Bobby Shew (big band), vibraphonist/drummer Jason Marsalis, trombonist Wayne Henderson (The Crusaders), vocalist Kurt Elling, trombonist Steve Turre, pianist Cyrus Chestnut, trombonist Fred Wesley (James Brown & The JB's), drummer Herlin Riley, guitarist Steve Masakowski, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis, vocalist Germaine Bazzle, saxophonist Victor Goines, drummer Troy Davis, bassist Roland Guerin, drummer Adonis Rose, trumpeter Raymond Williams (Jackie McLean) - and so very many others!!  As this website will share many of the projects that I have been and will be working on coming up, check me out on my social media platforms, linked in the Social Media page!  I am looking at a very fruitful 2021, as well as I know and hope all of you are!  Blessings and Light always!!
