Seize The Time (NAIM) by Ted Sirota

Editor's Comments

About the track

Chicago-based drummer Ted Sirota formed the avant-garde post-bop group Rebel Souls in 1995 and quickly became one of Naim's stalwart jazz artists, with three stunning True Stereo recordings with Naim engineer Ken Christianson; Rebel Roots (1996), Propaganda (1998) and Vs The Forces of Evil (2001).

"Seize The Time is dedicated to the many musicians who stood up boldly in the face of oppression and injustice and refused to surrender or back down despite harsh consequences"

The Rebel Souls have a unique formula comprising afro-pop, funk, reggae, ska and hip-hop underpinned by the rebellious jazz and socially-aware improv of the 1960s. Cultivating what the Chicago Reader describes as "immediately recognizable sound".

Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls strive to use their music as a weapon in the battle against oppression and reactionaries worldwide, and not merely as 'art for art's sake'.

"With the world sinking deeper and deeper into crisis each day we should forever remind ourselves that in crisis there is opportunity. Seize the Time!"
