The Oracle (2019), 7.5/10
Requiem For Jazz (2019), 7/10

Chicago-based clarinetist Angel Bat Dawid composed the opera Song Of Solomon (2018) for two singers, dancers, marionettes and a ten-member ensemble, the Sun Ra-inspired Cosmic Love Arkestra. She played almost every instrument on her debut The Oracle (2019) that contains Capetown, a 15-minute improvised duet with South African drummer Asher Simiso Gamedze, as well as pieces inspired by opera, gospel and waltz.

The mixtape Hush Harbor (recorded in 2020) documents several 2020 recordings on which she played clarinet, synth and other instruments, as well as singing.

Dawid's 12-movement suite Requiem For Jazz (premiered in september 2019) was performed by the ensemble Tha ArkeStarzz: Charles Joseph Smith (piano), Jeremiah Hunt (contrabass), Vincent Davis (percussion), Xristian Espinoza (auxiliary instruments), Norman Long (electronics), Adam Zanolini (flute), Hannah Washington (clarinet), Sam Thousand (trumpet), Isaiah Collier (soprano sax), Fred Jackson Jr (alto sax), Kwesaiah (tenor saxophone), J’Niya Blunt and DaJour Smith (violins), Michelle Manson (viola), Olula (cello), plus the Tha Choruzz (soprano, alto, tenor and baritone) and guests Marshall Allen (alto sax and ewi) and Knoel Scott (percussion).
