The Epic – Kamasi Washington

There is no doubt that Kamasi Washington’s debut album is “Epic” in all proportions; and has somehow created the spectacular. I think this will sit among some of the great jazz albums of all time,  like: Coltrane’s Love Supreme, and Davis’ Bitches Brew. What is also super cool about Kamasi is that he is on Brainfeeder records, which is Flying Lotus’ label. Given Fly-Lo’s love for jazz, he has promoted Kamasi and hence Jazz, to a new wider audience, which is amazing (Guardian’s take) .
