Jericho comes to us off of The Souljazz Orchestra’s latest record, Solidarity. The Ottawa, Canada based group demonstrates their reggae influence in this song, hearkening to the early 1970’s sounds of reggae giants Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. The music itself holds to a deceptively tight groove, with the guitar and bass playing the main rhythm in tandem. Adding to the atmosphere are the added percussion sounds, which compliment rather than overpower the overall groove. Coming from a band that has in the past focussed on Afrobeat and jazzier sounds, Jericho is a refreshing jaunt into the slower world of reggae music.
Solidarity is available on iTunes and is a must have for any fan of reggae music.
