A vivid large ensemble work from bassist Rufus
Reid – penned in dedication to artist/
activist Elizabeth Catlett, and featuring a bolder range of sounds than you're likely to hear from some of Reid's more intimate recordings! The core quartet features Rufus
on bass, Steve Allee on piano, Vic Juris on guitar, and Herlin Riley on drums – mixed with much larger orchestrations that features Tim Hagens and Tanya Darby on trumpets, Steve Wilson on alto and soprano sax, Scott Robinson on tenor and clarinet, and Vincent Chancey on French Horn. Charenee Wade adds in some very cool wordless vocals at times – and most of the tracks are quite long, with lots of room for individual solos. Titles include "Singing Head", "Tapestry In The Sky", "Mother & Child", "Recognition", and "Glory".
