Reed Mathis

To say that the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's music transcends boundaries and expands minds is an understatement. 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 has brought their heady progressive outfit from the Midwest's Bible Belt to some of America's and Europe's finest music festivals and jazz and rock clubs. JFJO has been touring incessantly and winning over fans and critics with their innovative music since 1994. After JFJO's bassist, Reed Mathis, made his professional debut on guitar in front of thousands headlining Austria's Saalfelden Festival with The Coalition of the Willing earlier this Fall, he has been incorporating the guitar into JFJO's music - taking their sound into an ever-new and exciting direction. This trio of pianist Brian Haas, drummer Jason Smart and bassist/guitarist Reed Mathis journeyed to Europe in November 2006 for JFJO's second European tour of 2006 with a dozen performances in Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and Italy

Marco Benevento: Between The Needles & Nightfall

Read "Between The Needles & Nightfall" reviewed by Chris May

To borrow a description applied to bassist and producer Bill Laswell in the mid 1980s, Benevento is a collisionist: he doesn't so much sit on the fence ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
