Kamasi Washington is an American jazz saxophonist, composer, producer, and bandleader. Washington is known mainly for playing tenor saxophone. He received widespread acclaim for his 2015 album The Epic.
As a member of the studio band that composed To Pimp a Butterfly, has released a triple-album set that functions as an extravagant love letter to (among other things): soul jazz, John Coltrane (various periods), and 1970s fusion leaders like Miles Davis and Weather Report. It’s a large and generous canvas, with the feel of a generational intervention.
