The Jazz Millions of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey
To the best of my knowledge, I was the only commentator to proclaim Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey's Race Riot Suite as the best album of 2011. I've never wavered from my admiration of the groundbreaking album. The band also remains committed to the project. Footage of a performance of Race Riot Suite's "The Burning" in Austria last month demonstrates its ongoing vitality. The embedded clip features impressive contributions from Kansas City's Jeff Harshbarger and Mark Southerland.
