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".

Awesome
Great tunes, bought the album on strength of Mista President tune - when are these guys coming over to UK?

The canadians seem to love fela's music a lot!! another canadian based afrobeat band. They have done his music justice. i wonder what fela himself would have felt about all these 'offsprings of afrobeat'. Keep the flag flying, kalakuta style..Highly recommended.

Great album ! Just can't stop bouncing from the begining to the end. First heard the Mista President tune on Radio Nova in Paris, and I had to get the album... It's pure bomb !

Good driving music
I don't know who Fela is, and my music thing is bebop, soul and funk, but this does cook. Heard them at the Montreal Jazz Festival and wanted more, so that says something right there.
