Stay Gold CD & Vinyl - Fall Tour Dates - Live Show Recordings & Reviews

     We are currently enjoying a little R & R following a first half of the year that has found us touring both the West & East Coasts here in the States, as well as a month in Europe.  In June we premiered our  'Ludwig' project to an ecstatic audience & rave  reviews for our reinterpretations of Beethoven's 3rd & 6th alongside a full orchestra.  We also released our 20th album, Stay Gold, on our record label  Kinnara Records.

     If you have yet to pick up a copy of Stay Gold, you can  click here to grab it from iTunes.  If you'd prefer a hard copy  click here for the CD and/or the double vinyl, and Tulsa residents can pick up a copy at the Whole Foods Market .  If you want a taste before you buy, listen to the title track here, and watch the video here.  

      Alarm Magazine says that "...the soaring melodies of keyboardist Brian Haas remain front and center, with the rest of the band offering eloquent accompaniment and robust grooves and beats.  Stay Gold is another compelling chapter in the storied history of JFJO."

     Congratulations to Tyler Miller & Caswell James, who have tied for 1st place in the The Sensation of Seeing Light remix contest.  Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry.   Click here to listen to their excellent remixes.  Visit our Facebook  page for more contests & easy ways you can score free JFJO goods by doing things like replacing your profile picture & inviting friends to events.

     In September we embark on an album release tour that will stretch from New Orleans to Louisville to Seattle.  If you live in one of the tour markets listed below and are interested in helping promote the show in exchange for a guest list spot & free JFJO goods please email us.  You can see and hear recent live recordings by  clicking here or here for video as well as  here for audio of our June show at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
