The star is Kamasi Washington, who tears it up on sax (even on the slow ones). Cameron Graves on piano anchors the sound, spinning that fast yet warm/comforting jazzy sound.
1- Midtempo intro and a fast-paced stretch of solos.
2- Quick-paced, a soft feel. Bass solo quotes Coltrane's "Syeeda's Song Flute."
3- Mid/slow, big and stormy. Very Coltrane-esque.
4- Soft ballad
5- Electric piano, electric bass! Mid/fast and nicely cooking, laid-back
6- Sunny mellow funk, again with electric piano/bass.
7- Spoken-word that's at once eloquent and full of dopey double-entendres (and packed with jazz-history references). FCC-safe, I think. Music is gently crashing and very pretty.
8- Coltrane's "Giant Steps," a fast and expert rendition including some amazing, showy sax. Mellow piano intro.
