JFJO: "Blow Your Horn" Contest


Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey
As previously announced, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey are heading out on a Fall tour to support their new album The Race Riot Suite. Now, fans can join a contest giving them the opportunity to add their own horn to a select track from the new album, as well as appear with the band live. Read on for details.

"This Fall we will be touring North America behind our latest release, The Race Riot Suite. In addition to hitting the road with many of the same horns from the studio joining us live (ie: Peter Apfelbaum, Steven Bernstein, Mark Southerland) we’ve decided enlist the help of local horn players in your city by way of a contest.

We’ve made available the sheet music parts for the song The Burning for Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Trumpet, & Trombone.

We’ve also made available a version of the song The Burning, that has only the core quartet playing on it, no horns. In addition we’ve included the studio version of The Burning as heard on The Race Riot Suite official release for reference. Click here to download everything you need.

After learning the music, record yourself playing your horn part on top of the supplied quartet-only track (labeled HORNLESS) using the digital audio workstation of your choice (ie: GarageBand or Audacity, a free program). Simply import the hornless version of The Burning into your workstation. Then create a new blank track, arm the track, and then record yourself playing one of the supplied horn parts “with” the quartet.

Email your version of The Burning as an mp3 file to: horns@jfjo.com. Label your file as your first and last name (w/ a space between) followed by “burning” (ie: jacob fred burning.mp3). All submissions must be received by no later than October 4th, 2011. Please keep file sizes below 10mb. Please, no more than 2 submissions per person. By emailing your file to us you are waiving any and all rights associated with your track and giving JFJO full control of the recording forever.

Submissions will be posted to the contest’s SoundCloud page (http://soundcloud.com/jfjohorns) so you can hear what others have played.

Winner(s) will be chosen by Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and given the opportunity to play with us when we’re on tour in your city. The winner(s) will be billed as a special guest for the evening and will additionally receive a complimentary copy of The Race Riot Suite on CD. All entries will receive a special download of bonus digital tracks from The Race Riot Sessions and World Premier.

We’re is eagerly awaiting your entries. May the best horn win!
