Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey
Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has announced a 34-city North American tour in September and October to support their new EP, One Day In Brooklyn. The band will begin the trek in their home state of Oklahoma before hitting Texas for two nights and then heading west where they'll work their way up the west coast to Seattle. After one night back in Tulsa for a release party and performance, they'll immediately join Phish bassist Mike Gordon as opening support on seven shows. From there, JFJO will thoroughly cover the Northeast and then wrap-up the tour with a handful of dates in the Midwest, including Halloween in Kansas City.

One Day In Brooklyn will be released September 1 on JFJO's own label Kinnara Records. It's the band's first release since pianist Brian Haas and drummer Josh Raymer expanded the lineup to a quartet with the addition of lap steel guitarist Chris Combs and upright bassist Matt Hayes. Recorded in one day at 58NS Studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the EP features two original tunes ("Country Girl" and "Drethoven") along with interpretations of songs by Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Abdullah Ibrahim, The Beatles and Thelonious Monk.
