The odd thing is that it's not Mr Jordan's playing, but rather the mixing.  He clearly uses cymbals and HHs, but for some reason they are mixed really really low.

And I like it!


Steve Jordan tone and playing has everything to do with it, the mix is only a small part of it, the playing is first.

Extreme Mixing:
I'm pretty sure that Steve Jordan produced the record too, so if they're mixed low, it's what Steve wanted.

David Barton:
they're mixed low, he might not have laid into them quite like a lot guys do, and he plays GIANT cymbals, so they have a lower pitch to them, which I think contributes to the effect. I enjoy it. really wish i had 400-500 bucks to blow on a couple of 17" thin crashes to use as hi-hats!

bigbone:

I saw Steve Jordan Cymbal set-up and they are custom for him, you can't buy them.......

Agree, but his playing is what the song need.
