Review: Kamasi Washington's keyboard player cranks it up! And Kamasi plays sax on this date.
"Graves doesn’t sound much like a clone of any postbop-raised keys player – his unbroken and rhythmically vigorous acoustic lines imply an education from hip-hop drummers as much as pianists, while his contrastingly romantic and ardent chord-work suggest what Rachmaninoff might have sounded like if he’d played in a contemporary fusion band." - John Fordham, The Guardian
If You Like: Vijay Iyer, Jaki Byard, Thelonious Monk
