( amazon customer) " The Souljazz Orchestra lays out afro-jazz tracks on this all-acoustic release, deftly mixing a strongly African sound with a variety of solo styles, reminiscent of Coltrane, Sun Ra, and Mulatu Astatke. The livelier tracks like Agbara (tk 2), Negus Negast (tk 3) (after a slow intro 30 seconds), and Mamaya (tk 5) (after a slow intro 15 seconds) easily keep your attention with their rich drumming and layered sounds - similar to a Fela Kuti piece. The slower tracks are thoughtful and intriguing - Rejoice Part 1 (tk 8) explores a sustained trembling, joyous sound, while Awakening (tk 1) is just like the title suggests: an unfolding of sounds from one instrument to an entire orchestra. Impressive stuff - something for everyone."
