While certainly not the greatest tenorman in history, Kamasi Washington is undoubtedly the most unifying saxophonist of the decade. He succeeded in this feat: relaunching contemporary jazz by updating the pre-eminent forms of the 1960s, bringing together a young audience from hip hop and the clubs, eager to uplift these music lovers with more demanding propositions. For the next generation of jazzophiles, The Epic will remain an outstanding album: generous, exuberant, varied, and triumphant.
