Kamasi Washington is a Los Angeles native who has brought jazz to a whole new generation of listeners. He is a phenomenally talented saxophone player who has toured with big name acts, and is now touring under his own compositions with his own band, the West Coast Get Down, a collective of young jazz giants. I actually went to high school with Kamasi, and even back then I would hear him play and think, “whoa, this guy is amazing!”
Kamasi Washington is one of the hottest artists in jazz right now, Part of the same LA jazz scene as Thundercat, Kamasi Washington has gained immense credibility in his work with artists like Kendrick Lamar, Lauryn Hill and Snoop Dogg but it is his solo work that really shines on.
