Kamasi Washington Details Concert Film 'Live At The Apollo Theater'

Tuesday, 04 February 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Kamasi Washington has announced a new concert film.

'Live at the Apollo Theater' was directed by Michael Garber and captures the California jazz saxophonist's performance at the historic New York venue in February 2019. It also features Washington's backing band the Next Step, as well as guests DJ Battlecat and vocalist Dwight Trible. Washington said:

"Playing at the Apollo Theater is one of the greatest honors that a musician can have. When I walked down 125th Street from my hotel in Harlem and saw my name on the marquee I almost couldn’t believe it. To be a part of that prestigious group of brilliant musical minds was truly humbling for me. To say that night was one of the most amazingly special nights of my life is a grave understatement. I'm so happy and thankful to be able to share this moment with people all over the world. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!"

The new film will be released via Amazon Music on February 6. In the meantime, take a look at the trailer below. 

Alongside the film news, Washington has shared a reflective, 12-minute long previously unheard track, The Bombshell's Waltz, recorded during the sessions for his 2009 self-released record, 'The Proclamation'. It's available only on Amazon Music, so head here to check it out.
