Kamasi Washington ‘The Epic’ was a revelation last year and one of the best new jazz albums we have heard in many years. Kamasi is based in L.A. and his music has parallels with the music on the great Nimbus label run by Tom Albach in L.A in the 70’s and 80’s and still run by his family today. Their most famous artist was Horace Tapscott , but every one of these selected 10 albums from artists including Nate Morgan, Dadisi Komolafe, Jesse Sharps and Adele Sebastien are superb deep yet accessible spiritual jazz sets. They feature some great compositions and musicianship, If you are not familiar with them please check out the soundclips. All titles are in stock at the moment on CD.
Listen and enjoy
