      ..Biography......

      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.....

      ..Biographie......

      Depuis sa création à Ottawa, au Canada, en 2002, le Souljazz Orchestra est devenu l'un des groupes les plus ravageurs de son genre. Renouvellant les grooves purs et durs des années 1960 et 1970, et fusionnant sans effort les rythmes soul, jazz, afro et latin, le combo fait évoluer les fondations établies par Fela, Fania et le funk de façons complètement nouvelles, tout en gardant la bonne vieille saleté analogique intacte. En live, grâce à des années de tournées incessantes, le Souljazz Orchestra est devenu l'un des groupes de cette scène les plus en demande au niveau international.....

      S'étant déjà fait remarquer avec deux albums du tonerre sur le label torontois Do Right!, ..Freedom No Go Die.. (2006, avec la bombe afrobeat "Mista President"), et ..Manifesto.. (2008), le groupe vient de faire paraître ..Rising Sun.., son nouvel album très attendu, sur l'étiquette londonienne Strut. S'inspirant d'un éventail de styles encore plus varié qu'auparavant, dont le jazz spirituel, les rythmes africains, et les sonorités cinématographiques, l'orchestre se dépasse encore une fois, créant une oeuvre riche en improvisations exaltées et en grooves envoûtants. Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio One) a d'ailleurs déjà désigné ..Rising Sun.. comme étant le meilleur album du groupe jusqu'à présent.....
