The Epic's Recent Critical Acclaim:

Click Here to See Kamasi Washington in:

"...this saxophonist-composer is unusually well poised to secure the attention
of listeners who have previously been uninterested in jazz." - Pitchfork

"In a millennium largely absent of anything new or captivating in the jazz idiom,
Washington has just unleashed a musical hydra grounded in respect and
intimate knowledge of the past and striking far out into a hopeful future." - Variety

"Jazz fusion that rockets everywhere from electric Miles groove to Sun Ra sputter, from velvety smooth to hardcore squawk - and still sounds as future-minded as any hip-hop or experimental electronic LP out." - Rolling Stone

"When Kamasi Washington called his new album The Epic,
he meant it." - NPR "All Things Considered"
