A Prologue To Kamasi Washington’s Fearless Movement

Turning his attention to dance for his latest album, Fearless Movement out this May on Young, Kamasi Washington resumes his ongoing study of music as a means of connection. His 2015 album The Epic, as well as 2018’s Heaven and Earth were received by critics and audiences as a re-imagination of modern jazz showcasing Washington’s larger-than-life compositions full of celestial grandeur and his distinct blend of jazz, Latin, funk, classical, hip-hop and soul.

Fearless Movement, however, offers something different: terrestrial rhythms and collaborations from rappers, musical icons and even Washington’s own daughter. Features include: Thundercat, Taj Austin, Ras Austin, Patrice Quinn, DJ Battlecat, Brandon Coleman, D-Smoke, George Clinton, Bj the Chicago Kid, and Andre 3000. The album’s first single, “Prologue” arrives today, watch the video below:

Washington has unveiled plans for an extensive North American tour kicking off May 4 at New York’s Beacon Theatre and culminating with the Hollywood Bowl Jazz Festival, which he will co-curate with Herbie Hancock for the second year in a row. Tour routing includes stops in Toronto (May 7th @ History) and Vancouver (May 30th @ Vogue), tickets HERE.
