And critics are saying:
“The eight tunes here are all classics of the genre, from estimable composers like Hammond B3 organ legend Jimmy Smith (“Prayer Meeting”), Stanley Turrentine (“Soul Shoutin’) and Lalo Schifrin (Smith’s classic single, “The Cat”). Even “The In Crowd” gets the Soulophonic treatment. The sextet makes these well-worn (and well-loved) gems its own, breathing its own life into the works while remaining faithful to the qualities that made the tunes classic to being with. Like the other two albums covered here, Soulophonic sounds as if it could have been recorded most any time during the last half century-plus; a reliance on recognizable tools of the style (notably electric piano) gives it that same timeless/classic feel. With this set, the Chicago Soul Jazz Collective offers up a welcome reminder that soul jazz is music for the heart, mind and soul.”
