JFJO: Lil Tae Tour

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey Tour in Support of Lil Tae Rides Again

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey have announced new tour dates in support of their upcoming release, Lil Tae Rides Again, available April 8 on HYENA Records. The 20-date run begins in the trio's hometown, Tulsa, Oklahoma, stretches up the West Coast to Seattle and wraps with a string of shows around New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. This will be the first West Coast tour for drummer Josh Raymer who joined JFJO's Brian Haas and Reed Mathis late last year.

Additionally, each week leading up to the release of Lil Tae Rides Again, JFJO will post a new animated stop-motion video short, created by Tae Meyulks, that features a different album track. "Autumnal" can be seen here and "Tae Parade" here. Lil Tae Rides Again will be available on digital, CD and vinyl formats. A free mp3 download of "Tae Parade" is available here.

2 shows in Oklahoma, and one each in Montana and Idaho. Have you guys ever heard of Phoenix? About 5 million people over here. Feel free to play a show anywhere near here...

Always great to see the Fred knock it out of the park & to see Reed back on his home turf. Also I can't recall if I've seen them with the new drummer yet.

It's funny that I usually lametn the fact that good shows always seem to pass by Tulsa, but on this one I get to see these guys play all the time. And they sit in with a lot of other local musicians on a regular basis.

There may not be much in Oklahoma, but at least we have JFJO and the Flaming Lips. Yeah, OKIES!!!!

Being an Idaho native I cannot understand why some stellar acts continue to book Johns Alley in moscow? A: that place kinda sucks B: not to much people live in that area, I guess Spocompton, WA is close but wtf.. come to Boise it is by far one of the chillest cities in the Northwest with great venues like Terrapin Station. quit screwing us... I guess the Knitting Factory now owns a venue in Boise called the Big Easy( soon to have a new name cause the big sleeze sucks ass) and were gettin better acts added constantly, but seriously moscow, idaho versus Boise? again WTFUCK!!!

i hope their new drummer is as sick as jason smart. ever since he left/quit/or got fired from the band, they have completely forgotten about cincinnati (jason smarts hometown, and mine). i'd love to see them again, i've been a huge fan since i first saw them at moe.down 2004. i vote for JFJO at summercamp. then i might actually get to see them again.

Winston's With Al Howard! Awesome!

I saw Brian Haas sit in there with Al and the K23 Orchestra, and honestly I still don't think I have recovered.

Can't wait for this show!!

Thanks for bringing great live music to the smaller cities. Sincerely. After 8 years living in the sticks --- it's much appreciated. I'd love to see a southeast run, but I'll see you at Matty's Party.
