How can I join the epic information to issues with a query?

In our project, there are a group of epics which have different themes attached to them.  I can create a filter which gives me all of the issues under these epics.  However, I want to use the filter for a "Two Dimensional Filter Statistics"  gadget for a dashboard, where the Epic/Theme would be the y-axis and status would be the x-axis.  But this doesn't work because the Epic/Theme isn't present on the issues.

Now I could push these Epic/Themes onto the individual issues, but that is just data duplication, and likely a maintenance nightmare.  An SQL JOIN of the relevant epic would allow the "issue and its epic information" to be present and then it would work as expected.

Is there any way that JQL can make this happen?
