The Jack Ray Organ Band will release their debut album From Blues to Bliss on October 7th and will be touring the East-Coast of Australia throughout September, October and November.

After a year of touring Australia and holding residencies at many prestigious Sydney venues From Blues to Bliss shows The Jack Ray Organ Band to be one of Australia’s best young jazz bands. The album is a collection of eight soulful originals written by guitarist Jack Ray and Tenor Saxophonist Chris O’Dea and shows a depth and maturity in writing and soloing usually found only in well-seasoned jazzmen.

The national tour commenced on the 22nd of September at the renowned Grand Hotel Underground presented by NIMA and continues with performances in Canberra at Hippo Bar on the 7th of October and for Sydney’s Jazzgroove Association at Sydney’s premier jazz club Foundry 616. Both the album and the tour feature Sydney young-guns Chris O’Dea (Tenor Saxophone), Tim Geldens (Drums), Daniel May (Organ) and Jack Ray (Guitar).
