Saxophonist Kamasi Washington didn't debut his latest jazz opus, Harmony of Difference, in a club—instead, the triumphant six-song suite was on display at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, accompanying a video installation. The former sideman for Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus continues to take a stab at the future of jazz, while paying his respects to the genre's storied past. Even if you don't know the difference between John Coltrane and Charlie Parker, you'll find the groove in Washington's refreshingly contemporary melodies.
