ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On this compelling new 11-track album recorded in the band's hometown, The Rebirth matches its musical vitality with a gift for lucid poetry and songwriting, creating a rich sound built on an organic blend of new and traditional soul, hip-hop, jazz, and funk. These elements make the group's music both highly progressive and a throwback to the classic soul bands like: Earth, Wind & Fire, Ramp, Pleasure, Rotary Connection, Side Effect and Roy Ayers.

Over the last few years, The Rebirth has celebrated the successes of several smashing singles: "This Journey In," "Every Body Say Yeah," "Got Your Madness," and their critically acclaimed cover of The Might Ryders' "Evil Vibrations." The release of the first 12" single from "This Journey In" quickly garnered airplay on radio stations from Los Angeles to the U.K. and Japan, and appeared on numerous CD's including: King Britt's Black to the Future, Gilles Peterson's Trust the DJ comp, and the Norman Jay MBE compilation entitled Giant 45. In addition, Gilles Peterson included the song on his list of "10 Best in 2003" and Norman Jay called it, "The anthem of the summer 2004."

The most recent release, "Evil Vibrations," was recorded exclusively for Ubiquity Records to appear on its innovative compilation, Rewind! 4. The result was a high-energy, textured sound in the original retro style that included some new lyrics, mixed with De La Soul's version of the classic track. Nominated for "Song of the Year" at Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards and concluding in 2004 at #6 on his playlist, "Evil Vibrations," continues to gain accolades for the group as one of the US' most promising neo-soul collectives.

*Nominated for Album of the Year, 2005 by BBC 1's Gilles Peterson's Worldwide.

*WINNER of Album of the Year, 2005 by Soultracks.com, the leading soul music website on the net.

"A fabulous CD and a contender for album of the year!!"
- Blues & Soul

"Up Step The Rebirth with some jazzy funkiness that Gilles Peterson is sure to be talkin' loud about.....This is slick, organic soul, spiced with fresh, futuristic funk and a side order of just the right amount of jazz, representing all the necessary musical food groups should the Jazz Cafe (in London) by on the lookout for a new in-hous menu." -Undercover Magazine

"...a storm of jazzy live action out of LA....solid R&B tinged tracks that remind us of the good old days of The Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai's first albums and the original Giant Step parties...lots of thick, layered vocals mixed with inner city heat."
- URB Magazine

"The Rebirth explores the space between soul, ambient and jazz with refined musicianship to spare. Tight music. Period." - The Urban Network

A thing of joy is a beauty 4ever.......
the 12" for "This Journey In" took me for a ride BUT the CD is on a totally NEW planet. Songwriting, vocal arrangements, and the melodies of these songs are so CHIC-like that I thought I was @ an old school BBQ back in the late 70's. & to add insult to injury, I was blessed to see them live in the Chi this winter, & I can truly say they are EVERYTHING you want & more...& that's a MARK OF THERE WAY'S!!!!

Awesome
I love the original and uniquely identifiable sound of this group. This album is a crafted piece of work, and just gets better to my ears everytime I listen to it. I give it a Siskel and Ebert thumbs up for this album.

Kys-One, lover of music

Enjoyed it from beginning to end.
I enjoyed this CD from beginning to end. It reminded my of an early Incognito sound sans Maysa Leak of course. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and true R&B music fans everywhere.

Buy This CD! Great
This album is a rare gift of high caliber performances and beautiful music. I feel like I'm just walking out of a concert once the disc stops spinning. One of the best if not the best NEO-SOUL groups on the scene today. I would rate this CD a ten if possible.
