JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2006 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Jazz Odyssey

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey were the perfect outdoor bar band. They were playing early, in the cold, to not that many people. I knew they would not want to be taken seriously with a name taken from a wandering, ponderous, experimental number perform by Spinal Tap. They were fun and good and they played an exceptionally wide range of material for a three piece. Bassist Reed Mathis’ bass guitar could sound like an electric guitar and did on their version of "Happiness Is A Warm Gun". - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
