Description
(Selected as a Top Ten Album of 2015 by The Guardian and #1 Critic's Pick 2015 by JazzTimes) Having proven his chops with such artists as Herbie Hancock and Kenny Burrell—and contributing to Kendrick Lamar's Grammy-nominated To Pimp a Butterfly—tenor saxophonist Kamasi Washington makes a grand statement with this intriguing three-disc solo effort, singled out by The Guardian (UK) as one of 2015's Ten Best Albums. Evoking the 1960s recordings of Miles Davis and John Coltrane, the L.A. native and his ensemble—which includes two drummers, a choir, and the virtuoso bass stylings of Thundercat—mix melodic jazz ("Leroy and Lanisha"), funk ("Re Run Home"), R&B ("Henrietta Our Hero"), and neo-classical (Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune) to arrive at a unique, 21st-century synthesis of styles.

"To be sure, it's a jazz album, as much about tradition as expanding it ... yet it's clearly shaped by crate-digger funk and film scores, hip-hop collage and gospel. Patrice Quinn's incantatory soul vocals ground stretches of remarkably mobile group improv. But the MVP may be electric bassist Thundercat, a low-end guitar hero extraordinaire."—Rolling Stone
