Bandwidth puts some Belize and some Souljazz in your Saturday

Ottawa's the Souljazz Orchestra is releasing their sizzling fifth album, Solidarity, on Monday, and two of the band members, Pierre Chretien and Mariele Rivard, stopped by the Bandwidth studios to talk about the new record and their upcoming European tour.
