Following on from his trail-blazing triple-album debut The Epic, saxophonist and band leader Kamasi Washington is back with a follow-up double album tackling nothing less than a metaphysical look at all of creation in Heaven And Earth.

Washington’s expertise as both arranger and musician is jaw dropping, whether its his take on Freddie Hubbard’s ‘Hubtones’ or his transformation of the Bruce Lee B-movie theme ‘Fists of Fury’ into a noir-tinged rallying anthem for black dignity and justice – each track is a little piece of raw saxophonic wonder.
