Kamasi Washington: Presented by DSP Shows
107 W State Street, Ithaca, NY 14850
When Kamasi Washington released his tour de force LP, The Epic , in 2015, it instantly set him on a path as our generation’s torchbearer for progressive, improvisational music that would open the door for young audiences to experience music unlike anything they had heard before. The 172-minute odyssey featuring his 10-piece band, The Next Step, was littered with elements of hip-hop, classical and R&B music, all major influences on the young saxophonist and bandleader, who exceeds any notions of what “jazz” music is. | Marked for ALL AGES. Tickets start at $28.50.
