Now's the Time: Kamasi Washington at the Truman
The condescending ways in which many jazz purists dismiss Kamasi Washington act as a contrary indicator of his artistic merit. The saxophonist, bandleader and composer has cultivated an enthusiastic following among members of the indie-rock and hip-hop communities. Washington’s appearance at the Truman on Monday, October 29, is the jazz event of the year for hundreds of people who have no interest in internecine jazz conflicts. Hundreds of less contentious performances are listed at The Kansas City Jazz Calendar.
