AllMusic Review by

Bassist Rufus Reid pays tribute to African-American sculptor and civil rights activist Elizabeth Catlett on his 2014 large-ensemble album, Quiet Pride: The Elizabeth Catlett Project. Using Catlett's art as inspiration, Reid composed these songs that touch upon swinging post-bop and gospel, spirituals, and classical music. Joining Reid here is an all-star cast of musicians including trumpeters Ingrid Jensen and Tim Hagans, drummer Herlin Riley, saxophonists Steve Wilson and Javon Jackson, vocalist Charenée Wade, and others.
