Jazz don´t happen a lot in mainstream music these days but when it happens it happens hard. And no one in the world of jazz happens harder than Kamasi Washington right now. His debut album released in 2015 ”The Epic” was exactly what it says on the tin, an epic. Aided by his phenomenal ten-piece band The Next Step Kamasi delivered 173 minutes of music, cooly swinging from smoky dive-bar to mind bindingly groovy cosmic funk. Last year, Washington returned with the equally epic but not as long EP ”Harmony of Difference”. Being almost a perfect EP, the release didn’t sound like anything we heard last year. But Y'all knows when jazz works best, live on the stage. Welcome to Slottsskogen.
Kamasi Washington (born February 18, 1981) is an American jazz saxophonist, composer, producer, and bandleader. Washington is known mainly for playing tenor saxophone.
