Ok the Souljazz Orchestra released a new CD, Inner Fire. Already an established name on the Canadian groove music scene, they have done it again and there is no other band that delivers so consistently over and over again. Inner Fire is a culmination of the years of influence, from West African, American funk and soul, Brazilian, Latin and beyond. All of it is seamlessly put down in an original fashion and presented with just the right sensibility to make your inner movement meter settle at the perfect cadence for your feet to follow. Hype? Yes we are pretty hype about it. And we are presenting them on March 7 at the Garrison. Buy Tickets!
Pierre Chretien, band leader/composer described the album best in an interview with CBC music: “Inner Fire is a bit of a synthesis of the different styles we’ve touched on throughout the years: it has some of the Afro elements of our earlier albums, Freedom No Go Die andManifesto, with the spiritual jazz of Rising Sun, and the tropical grooves of Solidarity. It’s definitely one of our favourites so far.”
