    Inner Fire further cements the Souljazz Orchestra in a class of their own on the world music circuit.

    Showing an appealing musical restlessness, Inner Fire is both enjoyable and exceptional.

    Inner Fire's biggest problem is a sporadic lack of energy.

    Despite highly effective stabs at afro-jazz (Kingdom Come), highlife (One Life To Live) and salsa (the fiery Agoya), it’s on the spiritual jazz numbers that the band really come into their own.

    Less party than their live show (and some of their previous releases), Inner Fire is still damn hot.

    In boxing up their inner fire, The Souljazz Orchestra have starved it of oxygen, so only the embers remain.
