Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has confirmed both a West Coast run in February and a March run through Europe. The group is touring in support of its 2009 EP release One Day In Brooklyn. In addition, the band is working on a full-length release after JFJO spent a week in December at engineer/musician David Teegarden’s Natura Digital Recording Studios just outside of Tulsa. The album, tentatively scheduled for a June release, will reflect JFJO’s first year of touring and writing together since founding member and pianist Brian Haas and drummer Josh Raymer revamped the line-up last January with the addition of lap steel guitarist Chris Combs and upright bassist Matt Hayes.
