New Kamasi Washington Film Features Miles Mosley
Jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington has just released his first feature-length concert documentary, aptly entitled Live At The Apollo Theater. The film, which was produced by Amazon Music and is currently streaming on Prime Video, features music from Washington’s albums The Epic, Harmony of Difference, and Heaven and Earth.
“Playing at the Apollo Theater is one of the greatest honors that a musician can have,” says Washington. “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!”
Washington is joined by his band The Next Step, which includes many members of the L.A. collective The West Coast Get Down. Double bass rock star Miles Mosley anchors the group, which also features drummers Tony Austin and Ronald Bruner, Jr.
Mosley has been on all three of Washington’s albums.
Live At The Apollo Theater is streaming now on Amazon Prime.
