Kamasi Washington

When: Sat., Nov. 11, 8 p.m. 2017

Up-and-coming jazz man Kamasi Washington raised eyebrows with 2015's The Epic, an ambitious three-disc album. With its heavy drums and soaring strings, the opening track, "Change of the Guard," sets the tone for the often atonal album. One highlight, the beautiful ballad “The Rhythm Changes,” features singer Patrice Quinn who croons like Billie Holiday; her voice pairs nicely with the song's delicate string arrangement and Washington's tempered solo. In the wake of the album’s release, Washington worked with rapper Kendrick Lamar on his To Pimp a Butterfly, one of the most notable hip-hop records of the past decade, so you can expect some hip-hop heads to be in attendance for tonight's show.
