Kamasi Washington didn’t pick up a saxophone until he was 13 years old, but by that point, he’d been playing several other instruments. That’s when he found his calling. Within a couple years, he was the lead tenor saxophonist at Hamilton High School Music Academy in his native Los Angeles. After graduation, he attended UCLA to study ethnomusicology. While enrolled at UCLA, he recorded a self-titled album with Young Jazz Giants, a quartet he had formed with Cameron Graves and brothers Ronald Bruner, Jr. and Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner, released in 2004. From that point, Washington continually performed and recorded with an impressive variety of major artists across several genres, including Snoop Dogg, Raphael Saadiq, Gerald Wilson, McCoy Tyner, George Duke, and PJ Morton. In 2014 alone, Washington demonstrated tremendous range with appearances on Broken Bells’ After the Disco, Harvey Mason’s Chameleon, Stanley Clarke’s Up, and Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead!, among other albums that covered indie rock, contemporary and progressive jazz, and experimental electronic music.
