‘futuristic in tone but hardwired to an ancient and deeply spiritual vision of what music can achieve’ ★★★★ Guardian
Only a few years after her emergence in Chicago’s jazz & improvised music scene, composer, clarinettist, singer and spiritual jazz visionary Angel Bat Dawid is already a phenomenon in Chicago’s avant-garde with her daring sound, spirit and magnetism of her cosmic musical proselytizing.
Her debut on International Anthem, The Oracle, recorded on cassette tape, includes tracks that Angel created entirely alone – performing, overdubbing & mixing all instruments and voices by herself – recorded using only her mobile phone in various locations, from London to Cape Town, but primarily from her residency in Bronzeville, Chicago.
As Pitchfork puts it, The Oracle ‘serves as a vibrant, spiritual, free-jazz document of black life as it stands today’.
