Kamasi Washington on how South Central shaped his experiential new record. Kamasi Washington Announces New Album Heaven and Earth.
Kamasi Washington -a tenor saxophonist, bandleader, and composer with the profile of a low-level pop star-designed his second full-length album as a metaphysical dyad, unfolding over two halves that each run over an hour. Far and away the strongest musical statement of his career, it’s also an exercise in contrast, if not outright contradiction. The Earth side of this album represents the world as I see it outwardly, the world that I am a part of, Washington explained in advance press materials . Heaven and Earth proposes a play of external and internal realities-a bedrock of philosophical thought often framed as mind-body dualism.
Kamasi Washington arrived on the international jazz scene from Los Angeles with a bang after the release of 2015's three-disc, three-hour The Epic. While he'd been around for a decade, playing with Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar - whose To Pimp a Butterfly he arranged and played on - the mammoth project turned him into jazz's perceived savior almost overnight. But he understood his own mission remarkably well and has remained undaunted by the hype. Heaven and Earth is a major dose of Afro-Futurism. Earth opens with a killer cover of the theme from Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury, retitled in plural here. Quinn and Dwight Trible duet on lead vocals backed by a soaring, sweeping choir atop a cooking Latin jazz groove complete with montunos from Graves and a raw-boned solo from Washington (who is on fire throughout).
The cover of Kamasi Washington’s album Heaven and Earth. All of which makes Kamasi Washington faintly extraordinary. His last London gig was not at the intimate Servant Jazz Quarters, but the Roundhouse, a venue at which the audience was clearly not comprised of longstanding jazz buffs. It all seems to have been achieved without pragmatic compromise
Kamasi Washington’s sophomore album Heaven and Earth not only fulfills its overarching ambition, but illustrates the dialectic between seen and unseen, real and imagined, citizen and culture, self and self, as well as self and other, and does so through the lens of a mature but never jaded revolutionary consciousness. The artist’s own words best convey the inspiration behind this monolith of an album The world that my mind lives in, lives in my mind. This idea inspired me to make this album Heaven and Earth.
Kamasi Washington’s new double album, Heaven and Earth, picks up on the ambitious ideas he introduced on his breakout 2015 LP, The Epic. Kamasi Washington’s new double album, Heaven and Earth, picks up on the ambitious ideas he introduced on his breakout 2015 LP, The Epic. By Giovanni Russonello. The trumpeter Dontae Winslow, who was not on the previous album, caps the track with a subtly affecting solo. Yet there are also moments of almost direct overlap with The Epic. On Testify, a jouncing and catchy vehicle for Ms. Quinn (whose singing offers rewards at every turn), Mr. Washington clearly recycles the pacing and even the harmonic design of The Rhythm Changes from The Epic. And on Show Us the Way, the pianist Cameron Graves pounds a pattern distinctly reminiscent of his old part in Change of the Guard.
