"I want to play music that's 'free', music where people in the group can express themselves. I'm always thinking what if some kids from the projects walked in here or people who didn't listen to jazz all the time; would they be able to feel what was going on? I try to find a way, even if it's just by playing with a lot of emotion and feeling, that people can relate to."
---Ted Sirota

Drummer Ted Sirota's debut CD with his Rebel Souls quartet displays his passion for the avant garde of the '60s (e.g., Ornette Coleman and his sidemen). This is not so much a free jazz as a free bop excursion, with melodies played by tenor saxophonist Kevin Kizer, and obtuse, angular lines from electric guitarist Jeff Parker. Bassist Jeff Hill is unspectacular, but plays a good part in backing the others. There's a great version of Thelonious Monk's "Brilliant Corners," with all the downtempo to uptempo changes, haunting impressions, and bop sonorities of the original. Guitar and tenor team for the unison lines, and there's an easy swinging blues bridge. Sonny Rollins' "East Broadway Rundown" is taken at a hip-hop funk clip, with Charlie Haden's "First Song" played in reverent, somber tones, while the more obscure Coleman piece "WRU" has the tricky angular changes played very faithfully, with hard bop incursions added for good measure. Of the originals, Sirota's "Song for Mumia" smacks of Old & New Dreams in a 6/8 Yoruban flavor, with barking tenor, guitar, and tenor talkback, and the leader's drum solo reflective of Ed Blackwell's signature mannerisms, especially on tom-toms. Parker's moodiness comes out straightforward for the soulful free bopper "Four Folks," with bass ostinato buoying everyone's solos and enforcing a fragmented melody. Kizer's writing adopts a seismologic needle jumping phrase on "Ornettish," while "Voids" hits a waltzing ballad pace after a totally chaotic intro. There's some very strong music being played here by a group that has no intention of playing it safe. ~ Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide

Ted Sirota

Active Decades: '90s and '00s
Genre: Jazz
Styles: Modern Creative, Avant-Garde Jazz

In Chicago's jazz scene, drummer/composer/producer Ted Sirota is perhaps best known for his extensive work with guitarist Jeff Parker and for leading his avant-gardepost-bop band the Rebel Souls. The politically outspoken Sirota is not the sort of avant-garde improviser who plays atonal music exclusively -- far from it. Sirota has favored an inside/outside approach, and while he can be abstract, intellectual, angular, or cerebral, the Midwesterner can also be quite musical and melodic. Compositionally, Sirota brings a long list of influences to his recordings -- a list that includes, among others, Ornette Coleman, Charlie Haden, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, reggae icon Bob Marley, and the late Nigerian star Fela Kuti (who was greatly influenced by modal jazz). And as a drummer, Sirota has been affected by explorers who range from Ed Blackwell, Andrew Cyrille, and Rashied Ali to Elvin Jones and Max Roach. Although jazz-oriented, Sirota is far from an elitist jazz snob. He has gladly acknowledged the influence of reggae, calypso, soca, and African music, and the drummer spent two years backing veteran blues singer Eddie Kirkland; also, he has done studio work for Chicago-based rappers Longshot and Diverse.
Sirota was born in Champaign, IL, on May 3, 1969, but spent most of his pre-adult years in the Chicago suburbs. He began studying the drums when he was 11 in 1980, and at 18 Sirota moved to Boston to attend the well-known Berklee College of Music. The drummer spent half a decade in Boston, where he graduated from Berklee in 1991 and was a member of an avant-garde jazz group called the Last Kwartet (which also included trombonist Sara P. Smith, bassist Chris Lopes, and frequent companion Jeff Parker). Sirota didn't play jazz exclusively in Boston; he also played in various soca and reggae bands in that New England city. Although Boston has long had a healthy and attractive music scene, Sirota opted to move back to Chicago in 1992 -- and the other members of the Last Kwartet moved there with him. Sirota's two-year association with Eddie Kirkland began in 1993, and in 1995, he became a member of a Chicago-based outfit called the Sabertooth Jazz Quartet (which frequently appeared at the Green Mill, one of the Windy City's best known jazz clubs).
It was in 1996 that Sirota formed his group Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls, which sounds like the name of a reggae band but specializes in instrumental avant-garde and post-bop jazz. The band has had different lineups along the way; the members have included Parker, tenor saxophonist Geof Bradfield, cornetist Rob Mazurek, trombonist Jeb Bishop, and bassists Noel Kupersmith, Josh Abrams, and Clark Sommers. Sirota's first album with his Rebel Souls, Rebel Roots, was recorded for the British Naim label in 1996; that CD was followed by Propaganda (a 1999 release on Naim) and Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls vs. the Forces of Evil (a 2001 release). In 2003, Sirota and the Rebel Souls recorded Breeding Resistance for Chicago's long-lasting Delmark label.
