JFJO goes to Europe

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey return to Europe in October. Touring in support of Lil Tae Rides Again (Hyena) and its subsequent digital exclusive release Lil Tae Rides Again Live (1320), JFJO will perform in Great Britian, Ireland, Scotland, Holland, Germany and Sweden over the course of the three week tour.  Highlights will include performances at Guinness Cork Jazz Festival in Ireland and the 40th Umea International Jazz Festival in Sweden, as well as a Halloween performance in London to finish the run.

Before jumping the pond, the Tulsa-based trio (Brian Haas on keys, Reed Mathis on guitars and Josh Raymer on drums) are set to play their final east coast shows of 2008, including legendary jazz venue, The Blue Note, in New York City.  It will conclude a banner year for JFJO whose latest studio album was widely praised by publications like Downbeat, The Village Voice and San Francisco Weekly, while a relentless touring schedule featured stops at Newport Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center and the The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame.
