Biography :
Pianist Brian Haas, drummer Jason Smart, and bassist/effects wizard/guitarist Reed Mathis occupy a rather unique place in the music world. They generate an all-inclusive emotional, mental, spiritual and physical experience for the listener, an experience that moves one beyond any preconceived notions of musical possibilities. Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's bold, amorphous and visceral music is influenced just as much by post-rock and ambient electronica as traditional jazz standards, chamber music and free improvisation. JFJO's virtuosic instrumental interplay and near-telepathic improvisation have won over fans and critics alike all over North America, Europe and South America.

These three musicians are musical chameleons who can move crowds in small jazz clubs, big rock clubs and performing arts theaters. JFJO may be dropping jaws while opening up for Sound Tribe Sector 9 or they may be receiving multiple standing ovations while opening up for Al Di Meola - all in the same week of touring. They have been celebrated by the jazz world - playing regularly at NYC's Blue Note, in some of Europe's biggest jazz theaters and appearing in major jazz magazines such as Downbeat and JazzTimes - but they also have found success and audiences in the jam scene - playing large festivals and performing with the likes of Les Claypool, Steve Kimock and the Everyone Orchestra.

The Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey is the evolution of an ongoing musical discourse that's been developed over countless tours. Starting out in Tulsa, OK as a funky octet in 1994, JFJO became a trio around the turn of the century. Haas and Mathis have been playing together for almost fourteen years (Smart joined the band five years ago) and have, year after year, maintained a tour schedule that would crush less dedicated musicians. Over time, the trio has blossomed into one of the most visionary, fearless and tight bands around. JFJO's rare and different sound exhibits an abstract yet mature musical freedom and inquiry.

In 2004, JFJO released their first album with Hyena Records, Walking with Giants. 2005 saw the release of their second Hyena album, The Sameness of Difference, an album of 13 songs (all but one recorded in one day) produced by recording heavyweight and Hyena label head Joel Dorn. Unlike the all-originals Giants, more than half of Sameness’s tunes are covers of songs by a remarkably eclectic set of composers (Bjork, Brian Wilson, Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck, Neil Young). Most recently in 2006, JFJO released Tomorrow We'll Know Today, a digital exclusive album containing re-mastered live tracks from the US and Europe.
