Kamasi Washington follows up his aptly titled ‘The Epic’ with another amazingly creative and spiritual double CD/4LP set. ‘Heaven and Earth’ is a concept Jazz album steeped in Spirituality, Two and a half hours of Cosmic sounds with 8 tracks on each of two albums ‘Earth’ and ‘Heaven’ to soothe your Soul and invigorate your mind. This album will further establish Kamasi Washington as one of the leading contemporary Jazz artists, but it will also have a broader appeal than his incredible debut. ‘Kings Of Fury’ is a magnificent track, great instrumentation and strings and that vocal choir, top with sweet vocals almost like something from a 60’s film. ‘Hub Tones’ is a full on belter with reference to the Blue Note sound, whilst the beautiful rhythmic ‘Tiffakonkae’ sounds like something Phaoroah might have recorded with Lonnie Liston Smith’. ‘Testify’ is a lovely melodic vocal track. ‘Space Traveller’s Lullaby’ is absolutely beautiful cosmic Jazz, a track to close your eyes to and let yourself wander through Time and Space. ‘Vi Lua Vi’ is another strong ft a vocoder. ‘Song of the fallen’ and ‘Show us the way’ could have been on his The Epic set., whilst ‘The Psalmnist’ is a wonderful upbeat spiritual jazz workout. Suffice to say this will be one of, if not THE album of the year.
