Kamasi heeds the call of an epic time

“We have been playing for audiences that are not necessarily traditional jazz audiences,” says tenor saxophonist Kamasi Washington, by phone from Los Angeles. “The people that come to our shows, a lot of them say that it’s the first time that they have been to a jazz show, but there are also long-standing jazz fans as well.”

The effect, elegance and sheer volume of Washington’s 2015 debut album The Epic shook the notion of genre to its very core.
