"A vast, immersive aural exploration of black experiences"
Pitchfork
"A Sun Ra-infused mixture of samples, sonic fragments and spoken word—somehow austere and lush, simultaneously"
Downbeat
"Futuristic in tone but hardwired to an ancient and deeply spiritual vision of what music can achieve"

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 proselytising 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.
