Kamasi Washington is perhaps the most talked-about jazz musician on the planet since the release of his album The Epic five years ago. While that title is up for debate (the artist himself deflects it) what is not debatable is the persuasiveness and conviction of his Alice Coltrane and Horace Tapscott-indebted tunes. Referencing sources as varied as Stravinsky and ’80s video-game music, Washington’s music aims both at the head and the heart of the jazz listener, a nervous system experience of funky uplifting.
