Watch Kamasi Washington & Co.'s Breathtaking Live Set For Boiler Room In Full
It’s been a helluva year for young jazz giant Kamasi Washington. His aptly-named The Epic LP took the music world by storm, reinvigorating the cinematic jazz realm with a lush and tight 3-hour sonic journey. But his contributions to this watershed year have hardly been limited to his own work, offering a helping hand to records like Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp A Butterfly and Thundercat‘s Where The Giants Roam mini-LP.
But by now, you’ve probably come to know all of that. What may have passed by your radar is just how poised and pro Washington’s live set is. Rightfully so, as a 3-plus-hour record deserves nothing short of the full-treatment. Recently, Washington delivered just that at The Barbican for London’s EFG Jazz Festival, which was pristinely captured by the good folks at Boiler Room. And it’s available for you to see and hear in full.
Watch as Kamasi Washington stretches out over a six compositions from The Epic, live and direct for Boiler Room down below and peep his full list of 2016 tour dates to start the year off on the best foot imaginable for a modern-day jazz head. And if upon completion you find yourself finally ready to experience the full-on glory of one of the year’s most polished and critically-adored offerings, cop the album on iTunes today.
