ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Description from Dusty Groove America:
More Afro Funk than the soul jazz you might guess from the group's name -- but that's OK with us, because the record's plenty darn great! Souljazz Orchestra are one of the best of the current wave of Afro combos to hail from Canada -- and they manage to get an incredible full sound from a surprisingly small range of instruments -- usually just 3 saxes, a trumpet, keyboards, and percussion -- but played with a sense of power to earn them the "orchestra" in their name! There's a definite Fela influence going on here -- grooves that move fast with very skittish rhythms -- snaking out with great horn bits and keyboard lines. But the overall approach is a bit tighter too -- much more focused at times, on slightly shorter tunes, about half of which are vocal numbers. Two tracks have the group breaking format a bit -- a great cover of "The Creator Has A Master Plan" and the Latin-inflected "Little Habana" -- and other tunes include "Mista President", "The Blind Leading The Blind", "Insurrection", and "Mojuba".
