Kamasi Washington

Saxophonist Kamasi Washington likes to make big statements with his music, and his latest release, Heaven and Earth—a double album that is secretly a triple album—is no exception. Washington once again embraces the cinematic scope of his cosmic jazz, layering winding solos with choirs and lush string arrangements. In concert, he surrounds himself with skilled players, including his father, saxophonist Rickey Washington, who clearly passed on his chops to his son. 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.
