Washington, Kamasi – Becoming (Original Motion Picture Score) – New LP

Regular price $ 26.00 $ 0.00
Working on a soundtrack, Washington knew he had to back up and accent but not interfere with the story so this is likely in fairly sharp contrast to his other albums, and certainly to his live shows, here focusing on moods to resonate with the themes of the narrative, and in many ways this brings out the beauty of this music. As he backs up, the beauty comes forward. most jazz just really ain't my bag so I’ve never spent much time with his albums but you'll find me on the floor near the front of the stage at the funked out workouts (and reflective passages) of this live shows, and this album warms my inner spaces like flames in the fireplace warm the cold interiors of a house on a December night. While folks who know jazz can probably make comparisons and pick out many influences, the influence of music of Quincy Jones, MFSB, Grover Washington, Al Green, and Isaac Hayes seem to make their way into the grooves. He's also keen enough to bring some Chitown into the sounds, and the influence of Curtis Mayfield (and probably some other Windy City musicians) seem to be present. The Vince Guaraldi influence comes out and helps makes this perfect for the winter months: like soundtracks of Guaraldi, this album captures the hope, joy and melancholy of the season. Beautiful and thoroughly enjoyable, this perfect for that last album of the night (or year) as you think about the day and slip into slumber. -- winch (green noise)
