AGMP presents Live & Direct from Canada
THE SOULJAZZ ORCHESTRA
+ special guest support: J-FELIX & ABI FLYNN
Since first arriving on the Canadian scene at the turn of the millenium, The Souljazz Orchestra has pushed the limits of its signature sound: an explosive clash of Soul, Jazz, Afro, Latin and Caribbean styles, unleashed by blaring majestic horns, dusty vintage keyboards, and an arsenal of earthquaking percussion.
The Souljazz Orchestra have released consistently excellent records since their inception. Breaking through on John Kong's Toronto label Do Right!, 'Freedom No Go Die' (2006) and 'Manifesto' (2008) set the bar high. 'Rising Sun' (2010), 'Solidarity' (2012), 'Inner Fire' (2014), 'Resistance' (2015) and 2017's exemplary 'Under Burning Skies" were all released on Quinton Scott's Strut Records.
Meanwhile, years of relentless touring have formed their live concerts into the stuff of legends - more often than not culminating in ecstatic, sweat-soaked, cathartic affairs, mixing pulsating arrangements with eruptive improvisations. The SoulJazz Orchestra have shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, and Femi Kuti, while showing no signs of slowing down.
