Ronald Laurence Albert Simpson, known as Ronny Jordan (29 November 1962, London, England - January 2014) was a guitarist at the forefront of the acid jazz movement at the end of the twentieth century. Jordan described his music as "urban jazz," a blend of jazz, hip-hop, and R&B. He came to prominence after being featured on Guru's Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1, which saw release in 1993. He was also one of the artists whose recordings are featured on Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool—a compilation album released in 1994 to benefit the Red Hot Organization.
Following the release of 1992's The Antidote, recordings from Jordan have been a mainstay on a variety of Billboard charts
