The Souljazz Orchestra on Wednesday 4th October 2017
Bam! Bam! Bam! In Association With ATC Live Present…
The Souljazz Orchestra
Canada’s fastest moving and hardest working collective, The Souljazz Orchestra, are bringing their explosive clash of Soul, Jazz, Afro, Latin and Caribbean styles to the UK for 3 headline shows in October.
Back with one of their finest albums to date, ‘Under Burning Skies’, the band have been dusting off ‘80s vintage synthesizers and early drum machines for the first time, bringing lo fi disco, boogie and electro touches to their trademark horn arrangements and earthy analogue sound. The fruits are a-plenty and the group sound at their confident and versatile best from start to finish, showcasing their new journey into tropical, soul and jazz styles.
The band have never stopped pushing the limits, carving a signature sound, whilst adding fresh dancefloor-oriented elements to the band's heavy mix of Afro, Soul and Jazz styles.In keeping with the group's previous work, the band maintains powerful lyrics at the heart of its music, delivering some biting social commentary alongside messages of hope.
Now celebrating its 15th year, the Souljazz Orchestra continues to be an unstoppable force. The band regularly tear up venues worldwide through its punishing schedule. In fact, years of relentless touring have formed the Souljazz Orchestra's live concerts into the stuff of legends - more often than not culminating in ecstatic, sweat-soaked, cathartic affairs, mixing pulsating arrangements with eruptive improvisations.
These shows will be something special - don’t miss out. “Resistance is evidence not only of the Souljazz Orchestra's abilities, but also of their audacity.” Exclaim
“...In a class of their own on the world music circuit.” Exclaim
“With every album, Souljazz Orchestra bring provocative surprise and musical delight.” AllMusic
