Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Seize the Time

Read "Seize the Time" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Possiamo pensare a Ted Sirota come se fosse un nipotino bianco di Max Roach: come l'illustre collega Sirota si muove in fase compositiva ed esecutiva con la massima attenzione per i dettagli, lasciando intravvedere sin dai titoli un forte impegno civile. Fortunatamente, anche le doti tecniche del batterista di Chicago sono all'altezza della situazione e i ...

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Seize The Time

Read "Seize The Time" reviewed by Troy Collins

In the grand tradition of such revolutionary bandleaders as Charles Mingus and Max Roach, Chicago-based drummer Ted Sirota leads his flagship band, The Rebel Souls, through their fifth long player, Seize The Time, with the same vivacious energy he fostered over their four previous releases, hearkening back to Rebel Roots (NAIM, 1996). Despite a ...

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Seize The Time

Read "Seize The Time" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

U.K.-based Naim label has been a cornerstone of high-end audio quality, and that tradition continues on Seize The Time, a studio date featuring Chicago drummer Ted Sirota and his diverse perspective on the jazz idiom. The mindset, or perhaps underlying force, behind this session is encapsulated by the drummer who suggests that the world is in ...

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Seize The Time

Read "Seize The Time" reviewed by Mark Corroto

To call this Rebel Souls disc ambitious is not an overstatement, and to label drummer Ted Sirota and company bold, does not unnecessarily over-dramatize their mission. Seize The Time is the band's fifth disc, of which three prior releases were also on UK's NAIM--Rebel Roots (1996), Propaganda (1999) and Vs. The Forces Of Evil (2000)--preceding the ...

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Breeding Resistance

Read "Breeding Resistance" reviewed by Rex  Butters

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls know danger when they create it. Arriving on Chicago's Delmark label, Breeding Resistance taps into an honorable jazz tradition of music as political activism. Mingus, Shepp, Kirk, Haden, and more recently Dapp Theory, David Budbill, and Vijay Iyer have successfully wed jazz and politics. Drummer Sirota drives his ensemble through a catalogue ...

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Breeding Resistance

Read "Breeding Resistance" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Anyone out there wondering where (and maybe when) all the popular culture protests over King George’s war will begin? Where are the Country Joe and the Fish bands? Has Someone kidnapped Arlo Guthrie? And will Crosby, Stills, and Nash have to seek the advice of their broker before singing “Ohio” again? Sorry, but ...

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls: Propaganda

Read "Propaganda" reviewed by Joel Roberts

I was immediately hooked by this album's first track: a loose, free-wheelin' tune called “Geronimo's Free" that laces jazz solos over a ska backbeat, recalling the best of the Skatellites. But don't expect just one sound or style from Chicago drummer Ted Sirota and his band, the Rebel Souls. Propaganda offers a little bit of everything: ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
