Additional Information

Since their creation in Ottawa, Canada, back in 2002, the Souljazz Orchestra have become one of the 
most potent bands in their field. Drawing on the rough, raw grooves of the '60s and '70s and effortlessly
fusing soul, jazz, afro and latin rhythms within their music, the group have moved forward the blueprint
of Fela, Fania and the funk in entirely new ways, while keeping the vital analogue grit intact. As a live
unit, years of relentless touring have formed the band into an in-demand fixture at venues and festivals
worldwide.
Having turned heads with two fine records on the Toronto-based Do Right! label, Freedom No Go Die
(2006, featuring their breakthrough single "Mista President") and Manifesto (2008), the Souljazz
Orchestra have recently released the hotly anticipated Rising Sun album on London-based Strut Records.
Drawing on a wider canvas of styles than ever before, touching on spiritual jazz, deep African rhythms,
and cinematic soundscapes, the Orchestra take their sound to new heights with stunning musicianship
and virtuoso arrangements throughout. Long-time fan Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio One) has already
declared this album to be their best yet
