The Epic is saxophonist Kamasi Washington's aptly titled, triple-length, 172-minute debut album for Brainfeeder. He is a veteran of . s music scene and has played with Gerald Wilson, Harvey Mason, Flying Lotus, and Kendrick Lamar (his horn is prominently featured on To Pimp a Butterfly), to name but a few. Most of his bandmates have played together since high school, and it shows. There are two drummers (including Ronald Bruner), two bassists (including Stephen "Thundercat" Bruner on electric), two keyboardists, trumpet, trombone, and vocals (Patrice Quinn)
Kamasi Washington, a member of the studio band that composed To Pimp a Butterfly, has released a triple-album set that functions as an extravagant love letter to (among other things): soul jazz, John Coltrane (various periods), and 1970s fusion leaders like Miles Davis and Weather Report. It’s a large and generous canvas, with the feel of a generational intervention. You can see hints of these outside considerations in some of the pre-release writing around The Epic-virtually all of which cites Washington's hip-hop associations as a reason to pay attention to his big debut as a jazz bandleader. Washington cut one prior album as part of a collective, in 2004, but this set is his real coming-out party. One can imagine other elite contemporary jazz artists grinding teeth while checking Twitter, muttering to themselves: if anyone paid attention to me, they'd notice the post-turntablism beats in my music.
Album · 2015 · 17 Songs. The most ambitious jazz album to arrive in ages, Los Angeles Kamasi Washington's debut clocks in at 174 minutes-with never a dull moment. While his flawless 10-piece band already packs a wallop, thanks to their doubled basses and drums, Washington embellishes them with a string section and angelic choir. Like his luminous playing on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, Washington solos with power and grace here.
Aptly titled The Epic, Kamasi Washington’s debut is a 2-hour and 53-minute, triple album masterpiece of cosmic jazz. Though not fully conceptual, the album was inspired by a series of dreams that Washington had, in which warriors were attempting to kill ‘the Guard’, who represented the person who protects music and pushes it forward, and eventually a warrior who is pure of heart enough comes forward and defeats this guard, hoping to impose his own standards on the music industry. This is the epic through which Washington is travelling.
