Rufus Reid Quiet Pride


Rufus Reid Quiet Pride

Jazz fans will need no introduction to master bassist Rufus Reid, whose “restrained yet emphatic tone, time, harmonic sensibility, and discernible, if understated, swing are welcome on any ses­sion.” (Ron Wynn, Sonny Stitt Dizzy Gillespie, Kenny Dorham, Dexter Gordon, Lee Konitz, Freddie Hubbard, Nancy Wilson, Eddie Harris, and Kenny Burrell are just a few of the jazz giants with whom Reid has performed and/or recorded since the mid–Sixties. (He also served for 20 years as the Director of Jazz Studies and Performance Program at William Patterson University.) He’s less well known as a composer – but that perception has been upended by the Motema Music release (on 2/11) of Quiet Pride – The Elizabeth Catlett Project. It’s an ambitious five–part extended work inspired by the work of the late great African–American sculptor Elizabeth Catlett (1915–2012). “You know how you can spend hours in a gallery, just letting the images sink in?” says Rufus Reid. “I found myself respond­ing to the shapes and lines in Elizabeth’s work. While there is no ‘absolute’ correspondence, I do feel that she inspired me to mix my own shapes and lines…My purpose in recording Quiet Pride – The Elizabeth Catlett Project was to create a definitive, professional recording, for people who love art and who love music.”
