The Souljazz Orchestra - Cartão Postal

The Souljazz Orchestra Cartao Postal

The Souljazz Orchestra will be back on september 18th with a new album on Strut Records, Solidarity, an amazingly and ridiculously exceptional album of Afro, Latin, Funk and even Reggae grooves. We contacted them a few months ago asking if they had a track for the Paris DJs Soundsystem upcoming afro/tropical/reggae compilation and they gladly sent us 5 gems to choose from. The uniqueness and fun of Cartão Postal hit us in the face with its carnaval vibe in Portuguese-language, mixing semba and samba with a retro & heavy late 50s sound. It was the last track we took off our tracklisting, in order to focus on unreleased, label-free music and it was a hrad decision to make. Thankfully the band have decided to give the track for free for a limited time, and we're VERY glad to share this marvel with you.

Album Info :
Canada’s hardest working super-group, The Souljazz Orchestra, are back! Since our last project together, 2010's Rising Sun, the band has been refining its sound on the road, and it shows on Solidarity which boasts a muscular, plugged-in sound that positively commands dancing. The album showcases a diverse set of influences, buoyed by the many featured vocalists, all of whom are connected to the group through the Canadian music scene, yet hail from a variety of backgrounds, from Senegal to Brazil to Jamaica and beyond. Recorded on vintage gear, the music packs a punch which is often lacking on contemporary recordings. Solidarity comes out September 18th, but we'll make sure to share some new music before that. The band will be touring internationally around the release, so look for them soon near you! (Source : Strut Records)
