Celestial Blues

Strut Records
Ottawa doesn’t automatically spring to mind as a hot bed of musical talent (and no, Alanis Morissette does not count), however The Soul Jazz Orchestra have been ploughing a lonely furrow from the city for some time, with releases on John Kong’s Do Right! label before moving to the Strut label. Lifted from forthcoming LP ‘Inner Fire’, ‘Celestial Blues’ is of course a cover and a faithful one at that, of the Gary Bartz classic that adds its own nuances whilst still maintaining the yearning appeal of the original. Good work!
