Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey

For its 21st album, the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey reaches into the dark annals of its hometown's history and emerges with a masterwork:The Race Riot Suite. Written, arranged, and orchestrated by Chris Combs, the album is a long-form conceptual piece that tells the devastating story of the 1921 Tulsa race riot-a real estate-driven ethnocide occurring under the guise of citizen-dispensed justice. The oil-elite, civic government and local press colluded to take advantage of a racially tense climate in Jim Crow-era Oklahoma, resulting in the death of hundreds of black Tulsans and the destruction of an entire city district.

Father Figures is a band of five friends from Brooklyn, making music that blends the composed and improvised into something that is wild, yet accessible. It is Zombie Jazz, and it is not your grandfather's music... unless your grandfather juggled knives. 

Can't make it to the show? This event will stream live on Concert Window.
