Album Notes
SPIRITUAL REZ is a 7-piece reggae horn funk dance party that has been tirelessly touring the country while commanding an extremely unique and high energy sound. Since 2003, the band has shared the stage with internationally touring acts such as Culture, Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Buffett, Israel Vibration, Buju Banton and Jamaican Legends The Skatalites. They have also been lucky enough to play shows featuring Bernie Worrell (founding Parliamant Funkadelic member and keys for the Talking Heads) ..boards. Their EP, RISING IN THE EAST was released independantly in 2006 and the band plans a live album in the summer.


to write a review

Mike in NY

Great! except the last song.
I think the cd is great. I purchased it after seeing them in NYC. Im a big reggae fan and i think this band is very different, great musicians!!! The last song though doesnt seem to fit and is a strange way to end the album. Great live stage presence. Im a big fan now and will definately be at the next NYC show!!!!

Jimmy Willie

unlike anything you have ever heard
Absolutely amazing!! Within a seconds, you realize the energy, talent and passion, far beyond their years!! If you enjoy people dancing at your parties, you need this album!!!!

Eric Land

"enhanced" reggae
Very cool CD! Some of the more impressive instrumentals that I've ever heard on a reggae album. Love the horns!


Super CD!


Nice rollicking EP!
Every song is great, just wish there was more. Oh well, just have to wait for whats next!

Zack Miller

A great release
While the pricetag is a bit steep for a six-song collection, don't let that deter you from "Rising in the East". This is actually Spiritual Rez's second album (the first is only available at their shows), but it definitely lives up to the expectations created by their debut. "Rising in the East" contains all that Rezheads have come to expect from this group of talented individuals: a unique style of funk-inflected reggae, complemented by a sharp sense of songcraft, Toft Wiltingham's gorgeous voice, and splendid vocal and horn arrangements. "Climbing the Mountain", a live favorite, is the best song in the collection, but there isn't a single song that stands out as subpar. If you want some smooth funky reggae with a healthy dose of spiritual resonance and social awareness, pick up this album.

Yet another present for my boyfriend, since the Rez sound similar to Taylor & Ninth (a San Jose band we like). What they sound like is Sublime, with the reggae and funk turned way up, and yes Ska people feel right at home. Enjoy it with Malibu rum! We certainly have.

Newbie here! This CD is different. Very energetically charged, very magical indeed! I Love it and I'm ordering it. Thank you!

See them live!
Almost by divine intervention this old man discovered Spiritual Rez this evening at Uncle Festers in Bloomington, Indiana. If they can make this 65-year-old man shake his booty and sweat just think what their music can do for you. Awesome musicians who channel everyone from Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Eric Clapton, BB King, Chicago and more while creating their own unique signature music. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts. Funk on! Keep the love alive.
