    Gonna get to see Reed again this wednesday with Steve Kimock and friends. He's also playing a couple shows with JFJO on the 31st which Im going too, and the Saturday after at a little festival thing in Waco. I can't wait!

    I have liked what I have heard from the Jacob Fred Jazz Oddessey (?), but I haven't been able to find the disc since I previewed it at Borders.

    Cool interview.

    BET Jazz turned me on to Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, and I instantly dug it, and bought a few of their C.D.'s. Reed's use of effects is very cool :bassist:

    Got to see Reed again last night with JFJO. Got to meet him and get him to sign my bass as well :hyper:

    Super nice guy, we chatted for a good few minutes during set break. We talked basses mostly, go figure hehe. I told him about the site, maybe he'll stop by and post sometime :)

    On a side note, they had a new drummer, Matthew Edwards. Anyone know what happened to Jason Smart?

    Hmmm, the only reason I can think of is that Brian is going to be doing the Dead Kenny G's a lot more. Reed's been playing with Kimock lately. Jason might be having a lot more free time to do other stuff -they better not let him go too far away.

    Well, the Dead Kenny G's are keeping simlar schedules as JFJO, and the Kimock thing was just the 5 shows this year, allthough Reed did say he wanted to work with him as much as he was able. I thought I might have read someplace he was having a baby or something, but I get confused hehe. Of all the things I could have asked about, that one is just one I forgot to ask Reed hehe.

    PS, gonna go see the DKG's Thursday for the 2nd time as well!

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Reed's a great guy and a hell of a bassist. Reed, Jason and Brian are all friends of a buddy of mine and I've rapped with them a bit in the past. Brian Haas is incredibly humble and gracious.

    I need to see them again, but soon! If you REALLY want to see something that will blow your mind, check out a double-bill featuring JFJO and The Slip.
