Kamasi Washington - The Epic (3CD)


The band are all from Los Angeles, mostly South Central, and its members - who call themselves variously "The Next Step" and the "The West Coast Get Down" - have been congregating since they were barely teenagers in a backyard shack in Inglewood. The story The Epic tells, without words but rather though some combination of magic, mastery, and sheer force of imagination, the story of Kamasi Washington and the Next Step and their collective mission: to remove jazz from the shelf of relics and make it new, unexpected, and dangerous again.
