JFJO New EP and Tour

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey Set To Release Studio EP On New Label

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey
Fresh off an incredible set at this year's Wakarusa Music Festival, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey will return to the studio to rehearse for their new tour. Their summer trek kicks off June 12 with a two night stint at Jardine's in Kansas City. Then it's off to the West Coast for three nights in the San Francisco Bay Area, a return to Arcata, and then three dates in Colorado.

Work was recently completed on a new EP entitled One Day in Brooklyn, which was recorded live at 58N6 in Brooklyn last July. The EP is set to be released in early September and marks the debut of the new quartet lineup in a studio setting. In addition to the EP being the first album to showcase the quartet, it is also the first release on the group's new record label Kinnara Records.

One Day In Brooklyn Track Listing:
1. The Black & Crazy Blues
2. Country Girl
3. Julia (The Beatles)
4. Imam (Abdulah Ibrahim)
5. Drethoven
6. Four In One (Thelonious Monk)

This new EP is said to draw upon "The Tulsa Sound" with heavy influences from hometown heroes like JJ Cale and Leon Russell. The group is also staying true to the perpetually evolving Jacob Fred fans have come to know and love.
