[JAZZ] + MON., NOV. 27

Jazz genius Kamasi Washington is definitely cooler than me or you could ever aspire to be, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth basking in his glow. He wears regal tunics, carries an even more regal cane, and commands the saxophone like an extra limb. His 2017 album Harmony of Difference, which was featured at the Whitney Museum Biennial, consists of five tracks that weave together fast-paced strings, horns and percussion and are as intriguing as they are complex. Washington will bring his band to Mr. Smalls tonight along with neo-soul trio Moonchild.
