The trippin' Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey will appear at Hurley Music Building at Centenary College in Anderson Auditorium on Wed, September 8 at 8:30 pm, says Kirk Reedstrom.

The eight original compositions on their new album, Stay Gold, showcase a revamped JFJO lineup, with lap steel guitarist Chris Combs and bassist Jeff Harshbarger joining drummer Josh Raymer and keyboardist and founding member Brian Haas.

Combining experimental jazz with influences from Tulsa hometown heroes like J.J. Cale and Leon Russell, the ever-evolving Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey is at home with the jam band audience as well as the traditional jazz crowd.

Your editor considers this one of the best opportunities to hear modern jazz in Shreveport this fall.

$5 at the door.

'Solid Gold' is pure platinum.

I caught them live in NYC and they were great performers, I won't miss them again.

Trust in Dust.
