Kamasi Washington Tickets
Kamasi Washington TicketsWielding a mighty tenor saxophone and leading a marvelous band, Kamasi Washington has become one of the most-loved acts in modern jazz in recent memory. Washington's sound appeals to both those who are jazz aficionados as well as individuals who are beginning to explore the genre for the first time.
Tooting His Own HornKamasi Washington was born in Los Angeles, and his parents were musicians and also taught music. He attended the Academy of Music of Alexander Hamilton High School and pursued a degree in ethnomusicology at UCLA. During his time in college, he proved himself to be quite the talent even with scores of other great music students around him. His experiences at UCLA helped prime him for playing with all kinds of renowned musicians, including many who were in genres that weren't strictly jazz. Some of the people Washington has worked with include legendary pianist Herbie Hancock; R&B legends George Duke and Chaka Khan; bassist Thundercat; producer Flying Lotus; and hip-hop artists like Kendrick Lamar, Lauryn Hill, Nas, and Snoop Dogg. Washington released two albums in the late 2000s - 2007's The Proclamation and 2008's Light of the World. Flying Lotus was instrumental in helping Washington get off the ground as he released Washington's first studio album, The Epic, through his Brainfeeder record label. Released in 2015, this album was one of the most acclaimed jazz releases of the decade. At nearly three hours in length, it showed that Washington wasn't going to make music meant to satisfy a short attention span. The album received praise from the likes of Pitchfork, Uncut, Stereogum and The Wire. Two years later, Washington released Harmony of Difference, an EP that showed his artistic depth was not fading. 2018 saw the release of Heaven and Earth, another epic album containing three volumes and running more than three hours. Washington has kept pushing himself with each release, raising the bar for what contemporary jazz is capable of being.
