The Souljazz Orchestra: Album

The Souljazz Orchestra Release Rising Sun

Since their creation in 2002 in Ottawa, Canada, The Souljazz Orchestra has become one of the most potent bands in their field. Drawing on the rough, raw grooves of the '60s and '70s and fusing soul, jazz, Afro and Latin rhythms within their music, they have moved forward the blueprint of Fela, Fania and the funk in entirely new ways, whilst keeping the vital analogue grit intact.

They have previously released two albums on Toronto label Do Right!, Freedom No Go Die and Manifesto (2008). Their third album, Rising Sun (out now), draws on a wider canvas of styles, touching on spiritual jazz, deep African rhythms and Ethiopian modes.

The Souljazz Orchestra will be touring throughout 2010, starting with North American dates in March, followed by European dates in April.
