Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Walking with Giants CD/DVD

SKU 15-TMF9325
Great price on a great album! This is by the 'jazz/jam band and beyond' keyboard, bass, drums trio that don't have anybody in the band named Jacob OR Fred. This is called a 'acoustic album' by their label, but the bassist is running so many boxes off of his bass, that I think what they really mean is that the keyboardist sticks to acoustic piano. Includes a very nice 40', professionally shot live DVD from Yoshi's in Oakland, CA.

"Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, constantly in evolution and innovation, are a fearless and visionary improvisational unit. Featuring Brian Haas on piano, Reed Mathis on bass and Jason Smart on drums, they serve to create one distinct voice that speaks in a profound compositional language. Together since 1994 and performing over 200 live shows a year, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey have developed one of the youngest and most devout audiences in modern jazz. During a period when jazz trios represent a vital movement in the music's history, they've helped pave the way alongside artists such as The Bad Plus, E.S.T., Brad Mehldau and Jason Moran. JFJO's new album Walking With Giants is the culmination of a decade of experiences, resulting in a groundbreaking acoustic jazz album that assures them a vital role in the future of jazz."
