Jordan Rudess Interview NAMM 2024

Voted “Best Keyboardist Of All Time” by Music Radar Magazine, Jordan Rudess is best known as the keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire for platinum-selling Grammy- nominated prog rock band, Dream Theater.

At the MIDI@40 concert last April, Jordan performed a piece he had composed specifically to celebrate MIDI.

Jordan played a Korg Kronos and was accompanied by players from India who recorded their parts on video.

Those players included  MAHESH RAGHVAN on Geoshred,  MOHINI DEY on Bass, ELIJAH WOOD on Drums and B.C. MANJUNATH on Vocals and mridangam.

This performance really captured our vision for the MIDI@40 show.

The musicians, composers and performance artists selected as MIDI brand ambassadors represent the beautiful diversity of cultures and people from all over the world and music from different genres and generations brought together by music and MIDI.

This year, we interviewed Jordan and he performed a new composition specifically written for the 2024 NAMM show.
