Kamasi Washington Interview and Preview

Source: The Sydney Morning Herald.

Washington, 35, presents as something of cosmic cat. Aside from colourful tunics, beads, jumbo jewellery and celestial album artwork, the 35-year-old’s nightly dreams are a major influence on life and work.

“One of the first songs I started writing choir parts to was Change of the Guard,” Washington says of The Epic’s opening 12-minute declaration. “While I was working on that song I started having this recurring dream about a guy who was standing on a mountaintop guarding a cave.”

SPECIAL PERFORMANCE SOLO, SOLO, & DUET

Our wonderful presenting relationship with Bohemian Caverns, and it’s proprietor, curator, and friend and dear brother, Omrao Brown, began in 2011, on an un-promoted Sunday performance by guitarist Jean-Paul Burelly, ultimately inaugurating our Sunday’s@7@The Caverns free jazz music series. With Bohemian’s sadly felt and regretted closing at the end of March 2016, we will conclude the named series – again with strings – this Sunday with a performance by cellist Janel Leppin & guitarist Anthony Pirog.
