Kamasi Washington began his tour at Webster Hall (pics and setlist)

Kamasi Washington @ Webster Hall – 2/24/16
Kamasi Washington

Kamasi Washington‘s first show of 2016 was last night (2/24) at Webster Hall, a rescheduled Winter Jazzfest date which was postponed due to his suffering a broken ankle. The show was sold out and crazy packed, both on the main floor and on the balcony. Washington’s name may be the one on the marquee, but he gives each and every one of his bandmembers a chance to shine and highlight their own accomplishments and creations. The fourth song was “Abraham” from bassist Miles Mosley‘s forthcoming record. The band includes Mosley, trumpeter Igmar Thomas, vocalist Patrice Quinn, Ryan Porter on trombone, Brandon Coleman on keys, Washington’s own father Rickey Washington on flute/soprano sax and not one but two drummers, Tony Austin and Ronald Bruner Jr. Ronald is the older brother of Stephen Bruner, aka Thundercat, who’s collaborated with Kamasi several times but was not present at this show.

Igmar Thomas also opened the show playing a collaborative set with Marc Cary, and Rich Medina DJed. Pictures are in this post.

Kamasi brings his tour back to NYC for a free Central Park SummerStage show on June 18.
