Kidd Gets News of Trip to Brasil

Surprises arise as Kidd Jordan Day, May 5, 2022, is Proclaimed in the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana

The rather ‘American Gothic’ look of the figures video-taped by Maryse Philippe Déjean above—Rachel Jordan (daughter, violinist, and main creator of a website for her father), Kidd, Don, and Stephanie Jordan (daughter, singer, teacher of music and of yoga—would soon be transformed upon the announcement of an Award from the philanthropic JAMBAR (‘Organic Artisan Energy Bars’) for Kidd’s life-time of music-education, an Awartd that might enable travel to romantic, tropical lands.

The Jordans’ great senses of humor “broke up.” Watch and see.

Services and a Second-Line for Kidd take place today, Saturday, April 15, beginning with Viewing at 8:00 a.m. More information is provided by Vincent Sylvain of the New Orleans Agenda.

‘The funeral services will be available for live viewing on YouTube at Funeral Service for Edward "Kidd" Jordan - YouTube, via Zoom at, or by using the referenced QR Code.
