Full Title: From Funk to Jazz and R&B, These 5 Artists Prove Timeless Music Is Still Booming
“Jazz has made a comeback over the past few years but not quite like Kamasi Washington. I am not a jazz expert but I can confidently say that this is the closest thing you will get to the good old days. Sure, there are many musicians making jazzy records, but this is the real deal.
Everything about the build up to Washington’s tenor sax in “Re Run Home” is tremendous. The drums, the horns, and the keys all makes you want to dance, snap, and shout at the same time. It’s the kind of mind-blowing groove that when played live is sure to make you remember why you love music in the first place. This is the kind of jazz track that you don’t have to sit quietly and clap when the drummer nails a solo. This is get up and dance jazz – just like it was in its prime.
Washington announced that his album The Epic is set to release in May on Brainfeeder, the label of music producer Flying Lotus. It’s worth noting that Flying Lotus is the nephew of tenor sax legend John Coltrane. We should all pay close attention to Kamasi Washington this year.“
