Watch tenor sax master Kamasi Washington light up the Paste Studios in this performance including “Malcolm’s Theme” and “The Next Step” from his 2015 masterpiece The Epic.
Bassist Miles Mosley had a chance to stretch out on the third tune “Fair As Equal,” with the sound rounded out by trombonist Ryan Porter and vocalist Patrice Quinn.
Kamasi is poised for a big 2016 after having worked with Kendrick Lamar on last year’s To Pimp A Butterfly and landing his own album on dozens of 2015’s “Best Of” lists. Catch him at Coachella, Bonnaroo, or the Newport Jazz Fest if you can. More complete tour dates here.
