Ted Sirota's Rebel Souls were formed by Chicago-based drummer Ted Sirota in 1995.  The band has released three CD's on the British label Naim, while the fourth, "Breeding Resistance", was released in February 2004 on the Delmark label.  Rebel Souls have their roots in the rebellious jazz and improvised music of the 1960's but draw on myriad styles, including afro-pop, funk, reggae, ska and hip-hop, to help cultivate what The Chicago Reader has called their "immediately recognizable sound".

"Ted Sirota has put together a band that includes some of the better young musicians in Chicago who can play on both sides of the inside and outside split in jazz aesthetics...-The New York Times
