The J&F Band Put Improv Jazz, Rock, and a Classic Grove in a Blender and Serve it Up Smooth

Renowned jazz bassist Joe Fonda and Allman Brothers drummer Jaimoe have known each other for a long time. Through years of discussions and a few jam sessions, they naturally began a partnership and gradually The J&F Band came together. The “J” represents Jaimoe and the “F” stands for Fonda, but they are far from being the only musicians that comprised the ensemble band. Surrounding themselves with band members like the veteran Italian percussionist Tiziano Tononi, LA jazz guitarist Raoul Björkenheim, and a killer horn section, their combined list of accolades and accomplishments is extensive… and that’s not even considering the equally extensive list of special guests.

Their debut release on Long Shore Records dropped in November and is gaining some traction. With a sound that’s hard to pin down, this is music for fans of jam bands, classic rock, and jazz fusion music. Trained musicians and students of music will find the diverse and intricate compositions to be very fulfilling, while the average listener will also be able to find something they enjoy.

With jam band season on the way, why not tap into a collective of experienced and talented musicians doing their unique rendition of jam tunes a little bit different than the rest? Check out the From the Roots to the Sky below or directly at their Bandcamp.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
