Watch & Listen | Kamasi Washington Live

Posted on

The Epic is a 172-minute, three-volume set that includes a 10 piece band, that’s 2 bassists and drummers, 32-piece orchestra, a 20-person choir led by the great Dwight Trible, and a compositional score written by saxophonist Kamasi Washington himself. Kudos to the Brainfeeder label for investing in this great album, I haven’t been this inspired by an album for a while. The band are playing the Barbican, London in November 2015 and I haven’t been this excited about a gig since Sun Ra’s Arkestra.

Jazz Night In America features Kamasi Washington and the music of The Epic at its release party, and in its full glory. Watch it at the link!
