On Comprehensive Beatdown this week, Bloggy Bonilla and Silent G listen to Disc 2 of Kamasi Washington’s newest 3 CD album, “The Epic,” which was released on May 5, 2015, on Brainfeeder Records, the label owned by Flying Lotus. “The Epic” solidifies Washington’s place as a leader in the American jazz scene. On top of that, he has played with a wide-range of artists including Wayne Shorter, Snoop Dogg, Raphael Saadiq, Nas, and most recently on Kendrick Lamar’s acclaimed “To Pimp a Butterfly.”
The guys also check out new songs from Skyzoo, Disclosure (featuring Gregory Porter), and MDMX, the collaboration between 7evenThirty and 5-D, both Jackson natives and Dallas transplants. Finally, the podcast is excited to welcome as guest picker, one of their biggest fans, Wade Thompson, who submitted “Legacy” from Joey DeFrancesco and Jimmy Smith.
