The Souljazz Orchestra

A multicultural, high-energy collective from Ottawa, Ontario, the Souljazz Orchestra -- featuring keyboardist Pierre Chrétien, alto saxophonist Zakari Frantz, baritone saxophonist Ray Murray, tenor saxophonist Steve Patterson, and percussionists Marielle Rivard and Philippe Lafrenière, all of whom are also vocalists -- took root in 2002 and debuted with a fully developed sound that fused Latin and African jazz, funk, and Afro-beat. The group’s first album was Uprooted, released in 2005 on the Funk Manchu label, but it was the overtly political 2006 single "Mista President," off second album Freedom No Go Die (Do Right!), that really increased their audience; it was voted to the number nine spot in the 2006 Top 30 of BBC DJ Gilles Peterson's Worldwide program. Manifesto, the third Souljazz Orchestra album, was released in 2008. Two years later, they moved to the higher-profile Strut label for Rising Sun, another Peterson favorite. After nearly constant touring for a year, the band re-entered the studio; the result was Solidarity, released in the early fall of 2012. After touring Canada, Europe, and Asia, the band reconvened at Metropolitan Studios in Ottawa in late 2013, emerging with Inner Fire, which was released in February of 2014.

After a global tour, the band re-entered the studio with fresh influences from the discotheques of Francophone Africa and the French Caribbean woven into their mix. they pre-released the video single "Shock and Awe" in July the following year, followed by "Courage" a month later. The full-length, Resistance, was issued in September. ~ Andy Kellman

Great sound, feeling like I'm in a Porsche 911 doing 160 plus on a thruway in Montana.

Just me on here I guess. I keep coming back. Soul jazz orchestra reawakened a decades old memory for me last year. I've been on a soul funk groove ever since. Thanks!

Wow sad to be alone. I love these guys. If a song plays in the woods it still has soul ;-)
