Kamasi Washington Dectet - The Message
It's been a long busy week with hardly any time near my laptop, so there has been surprisingly few articles lately. Music-wise I've been on a jazz tip with Joe Henderson and Alice Coltrane giving the best of company. Now I'm back at the computer, but I still can't let go off the jazz.
To be honest, I haven't heard about saxophonist Kamasi Washington until half an hour ago, but I much enjoyed this live performance of his ten piece band at LA's Blue Whale in the video. Among the band are familiar faces such as Steve Bruner aka Thundercat and his brother Ronald on drums.
