Oklahoma isn't usually associated with the word "jazz," but Tulsa natives Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey whirl like dervishes, creating experimental music from wisps of jazz, blues, funk, rock and all styles in between.

Originally an octet, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey has had many personnel changes over the years before becoming the quartet they are today. Drawing inspiration from jazz greats such as Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk and Duke Ellington, as well as rockers like Brian Wilson and Jimi Hendrix, helps them create a genre-defying sound. Over the last 18 years JFJO has delved into experimental jazz, ambient improvisation, electronic music and even reinterpreting Beethoven's 3rd and 6th symphonies. Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey is currently touring to support "The Race Riot Suite," their 21st album, which tells the story of the Tulsa race riot of 1921 with a blend of improvisational jazz, southern style rhythms and sweeping melodies.
