Ohio's Jazz Fusionists SOUNDOCTRINE's "INSPIRE" Receives Rave Reviews
(Published: November 24, 2010)
Ohio's Premiere Jazz Fusionists, SOUNDOCTRINE's third release "INSPIRE" was released to rave reviews. Critics are saying:
"SounDoctrine blends smoothed out, but emotionally resonant soul, fusiony funk instrumentals, headnodding beatcraft and jazzy soul arrangements. They cast a wide net, but that's what's makes the group special - it all flows cohesively. Playful, poignant, unpredictable and positive."

"This is another strong record for SounDoctrine - it branches off in some interesting directions but stays true to the message the band set off to deliver with their first CD and the many live appearances they did in order to spread the word...If you're not hip to Originalalternativejazzfunkfusion - get hip! "
- Chris Mann, Chris Diggin Deeper (Oct 31, 2010) - "Marriage" - Pick of the Week Nov 1
"This new album by Soundoctrine, "Inspire", lives up to its name, and then some. If you listen to this and do not come away feeling like you've had some kind of out-of-body experience, you should put the CD back in, press "play", and make sure your speakers are turned up this time. Listen again."
- John Marcus, Smooth Soul Online (Nov 02, 2010) Featured Album of the Month Nov 2010
"Synergy1Radio - Stellar Award nominated station for "Internet Station of the Year" Selected "Marriage" from the new CD "Inspired" from the Ohio based SoundDoctrine which proved to be a winner within 48hrs our listeners gave the song a 5 star ration. It's a smooth jazz track that is soothing and relaxing and has been added to the Gospel Jazz Experience and The Gospel Quiet Storm.
- Andre L. Carter, Synergy 1 Radio (Nov 01, 2010)
"SounDoctrine will quench your thirst for music and love on the surprisingly beautiful album "Inspire"... You will immediately notice that you are dealing with great musicians as soon as you hear the first notes.
- Richard de Jong, SaveOurSoul.com (Nov 02, 2010)
"Soundoctrine is part of a trend in gospel/inspirational music in which artists expand the boundaries of what it means to make Christian-based songs. They've been at it for nearly a decade, and have developed into leaders in this movement. Soundoctrine may not yet be as well known as other artists, but their unique brand of inspirational jazz, funk and fusion displayed on Inspire certainly shows that they should be. It is another critical success for a band that just seems to get better and better. Recommended "
- Howard Dukes, SoulTracks (Oct 31, 2010)
"SounDoctrine is a rarity in Jazz music these days. They are hell bent on breaking away from the rest of the pack. Take their latest release INSPIRE and play it for your friends who say they don't like Jazz and they will like it. Play it for your friends who do like Jazz and they will think that it fell off of the CTI shelf. It's yet another one of the places that Jazz will be going in the future, when Jazz is no longer "smooth."
- Bob Davis, Soul-Patrol.com/RadioIO.c... (Oct 28, 2010)
"Inspire" is a wonderful recording that has very positive messages for all of us. We ALL need INSPIRATION to carry us through. Just think."
- Kevin Amos, "One To One", WRCT-FM Pittsburgh (Oct 25, 2010)
"Soundoctrine's "Inspire" is a music staple of our radio shows. With amazing musicianship, the band blends funk, jazz, rock, and gospel into its definitive sound. We have known this band for many years and each release brings excitement to us. Thanks to Jere B and the Soundoctrine family."
- Joe Kelley, - "Upper Room with Joe Kelley and Gi Dussault" (Oct 25, 2010)
