Souljazz Orchestra European Tour Dates Spring 2014

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. The Souljazz Orchestra is one of the best live bands one could hope to see. And after tearing up Canadian clubs in February, they’re crossing the ocean to take their six-person wrecking crew to Europe for a generous run of shows in March and April. By that point there will have been plenty of opportunity to get to know the new material from Inner Fire, which comes out February 24th (and is streaming this week on Pandora).

Add these dates to your calendar, and get full details and ticketing links at the Souljazz Orchestra site.

Frankie Francis of Sofrito ReWorks The Souljazz Orchestra as US Tour Starts

With globe-spanning influences that touch on some of our very favorite genres and musicians, Ottawa’s The Souljazz Orchestra and London’s Sofrito make for a complementary pair. Both released incendiary albums this year, and as The Souljazz Orchestra prepares for a string of North American dates, the timing is perfect for a collaboration.

Utilizing the original multi-track masters (one of the benefits of keeping things in the family) Sofrito’s Frankie Francis has created a masterful re-edit of “Serve And Protect,” showcasing some of the fiercest playing on the latest Souljazz LP Solidarity.
