• Jordan Sollitto Takes Coffee Gallery Stage Wednesday


    The rebirth of Jordan Sollitto’s musical career takes another important step this Wednesday when the San Marino resident takes the Coffee Gallery stage at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 – a pittance when considering Sollitto’s vast talents, which include comedic genius.

    Sollitto – SMCAA volunteer and all-around good guy – put himself through the University of Arizona singing covers in area nightclubs…but that was a long time ago. Therein followed 30 years of grim corporate servitude that left precious little time for anything other than spreadsheets, sales meetings and – more thankfully – a wonderful family.
    Recently, like a singing Rip Van Winkle, he emerged from his musical slumber and began playing anew.
    Recalls the legendary Herb Pedersen, “Jordan came to me a few years back as a weekend strummer looking to polish his technique. Next thing you know he started writing tunes and it was like a dam broke…with a lot of really terrific music rushing out.”
     
    Sharing an evening’s worth of original songs that drift between country and folk, he promises to inspire anyone who has ever set their dreams aside…then wondered if they could rekindle them.
     
    Sitting in for this show will be Herb Pedersen and Bill Bryson, whose musical resumes intersected in the Desert Rose Band and Laurel Canyon Ramblers and also include the Bluegrass Cardinals as well as studio and touring tenures with the likes of John Denver, Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne and Dan Fogelberg.
    “I’ll pay you back if you don’t enjoy yourself,”Sollitto told The Tribune. “And you can trust me…I’m in senior management.”The Coffee Gallery is located at 2029 North Lake Avenue in Altadena. For reservations, call 798-6236.
