10 07 2017 - Under Burning Skies

So brace yourselves, there's a brand new Souljazz Orchestra album, Under Burning Skies, comin' out September 22nd! We explore new territory on this one, pullin' out dusty 1980s synthesizers and drum machines for the first time, and incorporating lo-fi disco, boogie and electro touches to our trademark horn arrangements and earthy analogue sound.

We've already got a taste for you up on Soundcloud, a spacey electro-funk flavoured track called "Lufunki", bringin' the Afro styles to Beat Street, and featurin' our very own Ray Murray on bari sax and lead MC duties... It was just previewed last Friday by our peeps at FIP in France and Greedy For Best Music in Germany, and currently sits at #1 on the Spotify Global Funk playlist, check it out!

Man, we're stoked for this album to come out - it'll be on Do Right! Music in Canada and Strut Records in the rest of the world, and we'll have it in vinyl LP, CD, cassette, and digital formats. You can pre-order the album here.

We've got a massive international release tour lined up as well, almost 30 concerts, in 10 different countries, on both sides of the Atlantic...

Stay tuned for more details!

13 03 2017 - Harmagedon

New Souljazz Orchestra track! And it's free if you hurry up!

The Souljazz Orchestra - Harmagedon

Well, new old track anyways... Our Canadian label, Do Right! Music, is turning 15 years old this year, and they'll be celebrating by releasing an EP of all sorts of unreleased gems by The Souljazz Orchestra, Atlantis Jazz Ensemble, The Soul Motivators, and others... "Harmagedon" is a vintage unreleased Souljazz track we recorded quite a few years back... The vibe didn't quite fit in with the other stuff we were putting out at the time, so it stayed in the vaults... Until now!

Oh, and by the way, we've also got two Do Right 15 concerts coming up soon, in Ottawa on Friday March 24th, and in Toronto, on Saturday April 8th, with lots of special guests... Don't sleep!

12 08 2016 - Coming Home

So we're back in Canada for the next few months, hitting up venues across Ontario and Québec, while working on a new album at the same time! Check out the full schedule for show details.

11 04 2016 - Africa!


So big news! Souljazz is heading over to Abidjan, in Côte d'Ivoire, on Sunday May 8th 2016, to play its first concert ever on African soil, for l'Émoi du Jazz International Festival. For our Ivoirian brothers and sisters, we've prepared a special mix of coupé-décalé, zouglou, jazz, and all sorts of other phonky stuff, this one's not to be missed if you're in the area.

We then come back to Canada to headline Westfest in Ottawa on Saturday June 4th. The line-up's looking good, this year's especially heavy on the 613, can't wait.

And finally, after that, we take off for Europe for most of the summer. Looks like we're hitting up France, the UK, Ireland, Germany and Italy so far, but we're still adding more dates. We'll keep you posted!
