Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey returns to Burlington for two very special performances on Sunday October 4th. First an unique stripped down version will be presented at an in-store show at Pure Pop Records at 2pm. Then later that night around 8pm the band opens for Mike Gordon at Higher Ground!
The band just wrapped up an incredible new EP entitled 'One Day in Brooklyn' which was recorded at 58N6 in Brooklyn,NY in July. The EP is set to be released on September 1st and marks the debut of the new quartet lineup in the studio setting. In addition the EP is the first release on JFJO's new record label Kinnara Records.
A description of JFJO's new sound for those yet to hear the latest incarnation is in order -- this is after all a band once described by Signal To Noise as having "a breadth and vision nearly untouched in modern jazz except by the likes of Wayne Shorter and Bill Frisell." With the addition of Combs on lap steel and Hayes on acoustic bass, JFJO has perhaps invented its own genre: red dirt jazz, equal parts earthy and nimble, pastoral and sweeping, elegant and rollicking. The quartet taps into their birthright, drawing upon "The Tulsa Sound" born of hometown heroes like JJ Cale, Bob Wills, and Leon Russell. These roots grow up into a jazz foundation that's built firmly upon the likes of Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk.
