Souljazz Orchestra return to stun the Hare and Hounds once again with their heavyweight Afrobeat, funk, jazz and soul.
The last time The Souljazz Orchestra came to Birmingham was one of the best shows Jibbering has ever put on- wowing the Hare and Hounds with their rich, deep and dirty afrofunk.
With their latest album, Rising Sun, still hot off the press Jibbering is delighted to be welcoming them back!
Rising Sun, draws on a wider canvas of styles than ever before, touching on spiritual jazz, West African rhythms and Ethiopian modes. The Souljazz Orchestra have taken their sound to new heights with stunning musicianship and virtuoso arrangements throughout. Gilles Peterson has already called Rising Sun one of this year’s top albums!
Think James Brown, think Fela Kuti, think Antibalas, think I can’t miss this!!
