We're revisiting our conversation with Kamasi Washington, one of the greatest living saxophone players. In the studio, he's played saxophone and arranged for hitmakers like Kendrick Lamar, Flying Lotus, Run The Jewels, Snoop Dogg – and that's just naming a handful. On his own, he's a visionary bandleader with over half a dozen solo records to his name. He broke through in 2015, with his three hour long instant classic The Epic – a record that found its way to a bunch of top ten lists. These days, he's getting back to playing live music. With a handful of shows on the horizon all over North America this fall. Kamasi Washington talks about his time playing sax in bands, as a composer and bandleader. Plus, he'll reflect on one of his first major gigs with Snoop Dogg and collaborating with Kendrick Lamar on To Pimp A Butterfly. Of course, we also dive into his nearly unbeatable Street Fighter II skills. This interview originally aired in November of 2018.
Kamasi Washington is a bonafide jazz icon and visionary who embodies the idea of music making as a communal act: collaborating with folks from across the music industry and infusing his free ranging Angeleno jazz into rock, rap and beyond. You've likely seen his name in the liner notes of your favorite artists’ work from Kendrick Lamar to St. Vincent and Snoop Dogg. In this episode, Adia sits down with Kamasi to talk about his musical upbringing, creating in an unpredictable world, and the transcendent power of Black art. For a playlist of songs curated for this week's episode, visit http://bit.ly/cr-kamasi/ Show Notes / Kamasi Washington’s most recent album is Heaven and Earth. Kamasi’s favorite childhood song was “The Pink Panther Theme” by Henry Mancini. He cites “A Chant for Bu” by Art Blakely and The Jazz Messengers and “Out To Lunch”by Eric Dolphy, as well as Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, as music that has inspired him throughout his musical journey. /Music in This Week's Playlist/Nina Simone, “Sinnerman”Kamasi Washington, “Hub-Tones”Joshua Asante, “Everybody Gets Used”Sun Ra, “Honeysuckle Rose”Beyonce, “Formation”Kendrick Lamar, “King Kunta”St. Vincent, “Pills”Henry Mancini, “The Pink Panther Theme”/ Credits / Call & Response is a Sonos show produced by work x work: Scott Newman, Jemma Rose Brown, Adia Victoria, Babette Thomas and Megan Lubin.
