Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey at Granada Theater

The much anticipated release of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's (JFJO) newest project, the One Day in Brooklyn EP, was released today all over the country and has already been met with rave reviews. To highlight the release of this newest project, the boys from Tulsa, OK are playing this Thursday night at the Granada Theater (3524 Greenville Ave.) The Kansas City Star calls JFJO "creative and adventurous," and the NY Times and Village Voice have been all but effusive with their praise of the new EP. Their concerts are part music, part party, part transcendent experience, and if their last trip to Dallas is any indication, this Thursday is sure to be an amazing night.
