Jazz In The Present Tense is the 1994 debut album by The Solsonics. Released on Chrysalis Records/EMI Records Group on 25 January, 1994, this was also the group's only album but it featured the singles "Blood Brother" and the title track.
The jazz/hip-hop and acid-jazz schools continue to generate interesting, if erratic projects. The Solsonics' instrumentals and reworkings and incorporation of such jazz classics as Freddie Hubbard's "Red Clay" and Ahmad Jamal's "Superstition" are intriguing, featuring fine solos from saxophonist Jim Akimoto, trumpeter Elliot Caine, keyboardist Mike Boito and special guests like guitarist Norman Brown. When lyrics and vocalists are included, the quality dips, mainly because they didn't find a lyricist whose contributions matched their playing skills. But their spirit, intensity and interaction are so good that it's easy to overlook the trite lines and lightweight vocals.

I was lucky enough to discover the wonderful sounds of Solsonics about 10 years ago on a date where I saw them perform at the Black Cat in Washington, DC in 1994. I'd never heard anything quite like them before. I was just in awe. Some have compared sols to Brand New Heavies and I would agree to a certain extent except that sols include the reggae feeling and texture that is unique. If you think you'd like the fusion btwn reggae, jazz and just plain old peace, love and soul music - you should buy this CD while supplies last. I have been listening to this CD for about 10 years and have been hoping, without success, to find something new from this group. Solsonics….where are you?
