Album Notes
Description from Dusty Groove America:
A searing second set from Souljazz Orchestra -- easily one of the funkiest groups in the contemporary Afro Funk underground! The set's even sharper than their first -- really tight on the rhythms, which are filled with skittish guitars that cut a groove strongly -- vamping and quick-stepping with a wicked sort of feel that brings back plenty of James Brown influence to a 70s African sound! There's lots of great horns and keyboards too -- again played with a sharpness that's wonderful -- a meaningful approach to solos that's not as extended as on other records, but often much more powerful. Vocals are often shouted or called -- second stage, next to the instrumentation -- and titles include "State Terrorism", "Kapital", "Parasite", "Interested Benevolence", "Amen", and "Grasshopper & Toad".

Awesome CD from an awesome group. See them live if you can!

Jim Scheidt

love it - heard Kapital on the radio, had to call dj and ask who was that? and ordered on cdbaby right away. This is the only cd I own of this group. Nice afropop from a Canadian band.

This is an excellent CD, showing amazing talent. The music is very interesting and rich. However, this CD feels almost identical to Freedom No Go Die...I hope the next album pushes the boundaries a little bit more. Great work!
