4.0 excellentlz41 | July 10th 24

Kamasi is just phenomenal. I never get tired of his pieces and the more modernistic hip-hop and electronic touches are an interesting addition to "Fearless Movement". Hat tip to Ronald Bruner and Tony Austin who drum their asses off here.

Kamasi Washington continues to affirm his status as a towering figure in modern jazz with his latest release, proving once again why many consider him the preeminent jazz composer and musician of our time. His newest album, "Fearless Movement," not only builds upon the ambitious foundations laid by his previous works but also expands them in breathtaking ways. "Fearless Movement" elevates Kamasi's signature spiritual jazz to unprecedented heights. The album boasts a rich tapestry of collaborations that enhance its depth and reach. Features from esteemed artists across genres?including rappers, jazz musicians, and singers?add a dynamic layer to the already robust sonic landscape. Highlights include the groovy Thundercat bass lines on ?Asha the First? and the compelling raps of BJ the Chicago Kid on ?Together,? which showcase Kamasi?s ability to synergize with diverse musical talents. This album stands out as potentially the best jazz release since 2021's "Promises." While distinctly different in style and composition from "Promises," "Fearless Movement" captures a similar spirit of innovation and excellence. Kamasi Washington is firing on all cylinders, pushing the boundaries of jazz and solidifying his place at the forefront of the genre?s evolution.

All spiritual energy and cosmic power flows like wine through veins in what is Kamasi's most consice and focused work on par with 'The Epic'.
