Oddjob has taken to spreading jazz to younger audiences, with their album Jazzoo which took Sweden by storm in 2013 and for which they were awarded the Swedish Grammy for Best Children’s Album of the Year.
Jazzoo’s music and enclosed pamphlet tells the candid stories of animals in the wild, with illustrations by British illustrator Ben Javens. The original Swedish text has since been translated into languages including English, Germa and French.
As Oddjob take the stage with Jazzoo, they are accompanied by VJ Helene Berg who brings Javen’s drawings to life in an interactive projection show.
