JFJO burns with a quiet intensity rather than dramatically explodes. The musicians play with a coiled looseness, improvising with quicksilver yet deliberate force. You can hear the band’s power and inventiveness creatively eroding structure, and the tension produced from that is exhilarating. If JFJO isn’t moving jazz forward, it is shifting its center of gravity interestingly askew.


“Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey weave the kind of impressionistic, imaginative new jazz that shatters any kind of identity, much less categories and classifications.”

Chicago Sun Times

“A breadth and vision nearly untouched in modern jazz except by the likes of Wayne Shorter and Bill Frisell.”

Signal to Noise

“Haas and company concoct a sonic galaxy far more kaleidoscopic than might seem doable for a trio.”

Downbeat Magazine

“Frankly, it’s hard to think of a more original, fresh-sounding band.”

All About Jazz

“…the group has matured into one of the finest and most exciting jazz groups around.”

Billboard Magazine
