JFJO in the New York Post // New York Winter Jazz Festival

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey was featured in the New York Post on Jan 7 2011 while we were in NYC for the APAP conference and Winter Jazz Festival.  We played at (le) Poisson Rouge as part of the festival on a night that also included Don Byron, Charlie Hunter, Steve Coleman and Five Elements, Nels Cline, RedCred (Medeski, Perowski, Speed), and Ben Perowski’s Moodswing Orchestra.

Right now our flights have been postponed till Thursday because of an impending snow storm.  Once we get home we’ll go straight to work on JFJO’s next album, the Race Riot Suite, a long-form piece I’ve written about the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921.  We are honored to be recording this album with Jeff Coffin, Steven Bernstein, Peter Apfelbaum, and Mark Southerland.  Listen for appearances from Okie badasses Matt Leland, Mike Staub, and Zack Elkins as well.  We head in to Church Studios this weekend to start the project with Costa Stasinopoulos producing. Jazz!
