Kamasi Washington - The Epic
This past summer, I was listening to Kamasi Washington's ambitious, glorious, scrumptious years-in-the-making jazz tapestry and was stopped cold by a particular track: "The Rhythm Changes." It's cheesy to say, but the song changed everything--simply life-affirming.
“I was always getting put in these situations where all this stuff I learned in jazz didn't really apply. Jazz is like a telescope, and a lot of other music is like a microscope.” -Kamasi Washington
