ok.. so Soul Village could be described as a tribute to Soul and Jazz music, but actually it's something simpler : it's just about (trying) making timeless, good jazz music
Why this name?
The name is a reference to the Walter Bishop Jr. song called Soul Village
Do you play live?
we don't but I guess we would if we could
Soul Village was formed in late 2003, when the band was asked to make a few tracks for the Jazz Makossa label from Cologne, Germany. Two tracks were released on a 7" (also by Jazzy Sport, for all the japanese cats), including an "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" cover and a "We're Gettin Down" one on the B-side). They haven't stopped recording since and y'all should be on the look out for some brand new upcoming tracks from the Village in 2005. But for now, here you can enjoy a few of the "rough" tracks that were recorded late 2003/early 2004, and were not picked by Jazz Makossa for the 7"
too many names come to mind.. all that funky, soul, spiritual jazz from the 70's has been a huge influence.. Hip-hop too.. Soul Village is like a blend of soooo many kinds of music
