Washington, Kamasi: Fearless Movement (2LP/indie shop edition/red/blue) LP

Availability: In stock

Turning his attention to dance for his latest album, Fearless Movement out this May on Young, Kamasi Washington resumes his ongoing study of music as a means of connection. His 2015 album The Epic, as well as 2018’s Heaven and Earth were received by critics and audiences as a reimagination of modern jazz showcasing Washington’s larger-than-lift compositions full of celestial grandeur and his distinct blend of jazz, Latin, funk, classical, hip-hop and soul. Fearless Movement, however, offers something different: terrestrial rhythms and collaborations from rappers, musicalicons and even Washington’s own daughter. Features include: Thundercat, Taj Austin, Ras Austin, Patrice Quinn, DJ Battlecat, Brandon Coleman, D-Smoke, George Clinton, Bj the Chicago Kid, and Andre 3000.

“The O.G. saxophonist made his name in jazz, but he’s bigger than the genre.” – Fader

“Kamasi Washington is jazz music’s brightest light–may he continue to burn for a long, long time.” – Pop Matters

“No one’s making music like Kamasi Washington. His albums are longerthan-feature-length epics, painting nearly wordless narratives through a seamless combination of R&B, iconic ’60s and ’70s jazz modes, and the cinematic power of orchestra and choruses” – AV Club
