Kamasi Washington // Heaven and Earth [Shoto Mas / Young Turks]

Genre-bending jazz from Kamasi.  The album ranges from mild and spacious to full sound led by his tenor saxophone.  Tunes like Street Fighter Mas might harken back to a Herbie Hancock experience with a choral backdrop. The two discs are Kamasi’s Heaven or his inward-facing-world and Earth, his outward-facing world.

RIYL: Herbie Hancock, Medeski, Martin, and Wood, BadBadNotGod
PLAY: Disc 1: 1, 4, all // Disc 2: 3, all
