After a triumphant four-show stint at the Blue Note, Kamasi Washington is coming back to New York for a gig at Le Poisson Rouge in Greenwich Village. Tickets are available here.
The tenor saxophonist has been receiving all sorts of accolades this year. His Brainfeeder debut The Epic has been one of the best albums of the year, and his work on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly has put his heady jazz project in the eyes of many that would otherwise overlook a jazz release in 2015. It doesn’t hurt that they’re playing one of the freshest sounds that the genre has seen in a long time, and you can go to LPR yourself if you have any doubts.
Peep the below video for a taste of what these guys do.
