ANGEL BAT DAWID The Oracle

Composer, clarinetist, singer & spiritual jazz soothsayer Angel Bat Dawid descended on Chicago's jazz & improvised music scene just a few years ago. In very short time, the potency, prowess, spirit & charisma of her cosmic musical proselytizing has taken her from relatively unknown improviser to borderline ubiquitous performer in Chicago's avant-garde. On any given night you can find Angel adding aura to ensembles led by Ben LaMar Gay, or Damon Locks, or Jaimie Branch, or Matthew Lux, or even, on a Summer night in 2018, onstage doing a woodwind duo with Roscoe Mitchell. For her recorded debut on International Anthem, The Oracle, we've chosen to release a batch of tracks that Angel created entirely alone – performing, overdubbing & mixing all instruments & voices by her self – recorded using only her cell phone in various locations, from London UK to Cape Town RSA, but primarily from her residence in the attic of the historic Radcliffe Hunter mansion in Bronzeville, Southside, Chicago.

Following a flood of critical & communal acclaim from The Oracle’s January 2019 cassette-only release, the album is finally available on compact disc and vinyl LP inside a deluxe old-style Stoughton tip-on jacket with insert card, IARC obi strip & dome-patterned inner sleeve.

"A Sun Ra-infused mixture of samples, sonic fragments and spoken word—somehow austere and lush, simultaneously." - Catalina Maria Johnson, Downbeat

"Futuristic in tone but hardwired to an ancient and deeply spiritual vision of what music can achieve." - John Lewis, The Guardian
