Review: Solidarity marks a welcome return to the studio from Canadian six-piece The Souljazz Orchestra following an extended break for touring. As with previous outings, the 10 tracks bristle with summery intent, mixing heavy bottom end pressure with piercing horns and authentically fuzzy vocals. The production makes it sound authentically 1970s, as if it was recorded in some cheap West African studio. Given the band's love of Afro-funk and Afro-beat - as well as the sort of psychedelic afro-jazz that so enthuses record collectors - it's a wise move. If anything, it makes the album even more desirable; certainly, there's an authenticity to The Souljazz Orchestra that can't be denied.

Review: Afro/Latin/tropical fusionists The Souljazz Orchestra have long established themselves as one of the most incendiary live acts on the circuits, reinforcing this rising reputation with a string of fine albums. Here, they deliver their seventh full-length, adding notable French Caribbean and Francophone West African into their already distinctive musical melting pot. Predictably, the results are impressive, with the Ottawa-based sextet effortlessly flitting between humid, Afro-Cuban workouts ("Ware Wa"), Hammond-heavy dancefloor freak-outs ("Bull's Eye"), slick soul sing-alongs ("As The World Turns"), and highly politicized Afrobeat jams ("Greet The Dawn", "Shock & Awe"). As usual, it's all impeccably played and produced, resulting in another killer dose of cross-cultural dancefloor fusion.

Review: Premiership fusionistas Souljazz Orchestra build on their inner fire with their seventh artist album. Marking 10 years since their debut Uprooted, Resistance reminds us of the band's incredible energy, tightness and latent funk in every note they play. Highlights can be found on every track but it's moments like the scat/percussive play off on "Shock & Awe", the feel-good chords and breakdown on "Bull's Eye" and the cowbell driven rhythmic switch on "Ware Wa" that really sparkle and compound the band's longstanding power. No other band of this nature have remained so tight and so consistent for so long. Resisting Resistance is futile.

Review: The second of two massive Souljazz Orchestra reissues, Do Right! Music have remastered and repressed the Canadian band's third album as a reminder at how timeless and universally powerful their fusion is. From the surging sentiment and powerful message of the opener "Parasite" to the churchy unity and happy ending "Amen" through the dense politics of "People People" and "State Terrorism", Manifesto was a pivotal moment for the band as they dug deeper into the cultural dogma without losing any of their original funk and freeform spirit.
