Featuring founding members Brian Haas (piano) and Josh Raymer (drums) alongside new members Matt Hayes (upright bass) and Chris Combs (lap steel and guitar), the Tulsa, OK-based Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey further cements its status as one of the most forward-thinking units in jazz with its new EP, One Day in Brooklyn. Recorded live in the studio without overdubs, this disc is sure to be snatched up by fans of jazz groups, jam bands, and beyond with its warm tone and rootsy twang. The medley of "A Laugh for Rory" and "The Black & Crazy Blues (For Joel Dorn)" provides a rousing opener, while "Country Girl" fuses Tulsa and 'Trane, and a cover of the Beatles "Julia" shows off an impressive, dynamic range. "Imam" and "Drethoven" explore the musical worlds of Middle Eastern, classical and hip-hop, and Thelonious Monk's "Four in One" playfully and confidently looks ahead to the promising future for this compelling and original group.
