Sun Soul Orchestra – WHAT MATTERS MOST: Well, of course, we here at I.N. know that it’s the MUSIC (that matters most); this April 2015 release proves that, without doubt. Their music hearkens back to the soul music I grew up on, albeit with a 21st Century “edge”… love the orchestrals & peppy vocal arrangements on tunes like “In My House“. No, it’s definitely not jazz, but remember, our criteria for reviewing music is “energy”, not “genre”, and the Steve Theard/Ginger Murphy team provide that for sure. The string work on “Waiting In Vain” supports their vocals quite well, and reminds me (in some strange way) of old Stevie Wonder vocals. It was the majestic soul presentation on “Zoom” that got my vote for personal favorite, though… old times (timeless) made new (think Four Tops or O’Jays reinvigorated). I give this splendid duo a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.97. Get more information at the Sun Soul Orchestra website. Rotcod Zzaj
