We at Revive have been hyped about Kamasi Washington‘s The Epic since it came out. In addition to premiering “Miss Understanding” before the album dropped, we also featured his thoughts on the album and his contributions to Kendrick Lamar’s critically acclaimed To Pimp A Butterfly in exclusive interviews. When it came time to attend his album release party in downtown L.A.’s Regent Theater this past May 4th, we were beyond excited.

If there could be anything as epic as the album itself, it could only have been the show. To see Washington onstage alongside a full choir, string section and his 10-piece band, The West Coast Get Down– which features two full rhythm sections– was amazing. Fortunately for those who couldn’t be there, NPR’s Jazz Night in America webcast will be streaming the concert in full tomorrow evening. Head over to NPR tonight to check out their recording of Kamasi Washington and his large ensemble, including some very special guests.
