This is a follow-up info of our review for Souljazz Orchestra’s new album ‘Solidarity’. Apart from a stellar release recorded on tape in a fully analogue fashion, the Souljazz Orchestra has dropped a handful of peppered throwback videos created by using old public domain material and vintage gear. The band is currently taking off to Europe for its first-ever world tour.
The album’s first official video for the track ‘Conquering Lion’ features the band performing the track at the Mercury Lounge in their own hometown (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada). Directed by Craig Allen Conoley it was already picked by National Geographic as the video of the week.
The video ‘Ya Basta’, composed by public archival footage could be the dream concert for the Souljazz Orchestra. Kudos to Philippe Lafreniere for the uplifting, outpouring chant:
Imperialismo – Colonialismo – Fascismo – Despotismo – Corrupcion – Explotacion – Militarismo – Parasitismo Ya Basta!
After rave reviews for ‘Solidarity’ and a blasting release party at Babylon in Ottawa, The Souljazz Orchestra are embarking this week for their first proper world tour starting at Paris (10 Oct) and passing through major cities across Europe (Milan, Antwerp, Amsterdam, Vienna, Prague, Cologne, Athens, London etc.) and North America (Boston ,New York, Quebec, Toronto etc.).
