Kamasi Washington gets epic again with Heaven & Earth double album and world tour 

Los Angeles sax star Kamasi Washington is set to return with his eagerly anticipated new album, Heaven & Earth, which will see a worldwide release on 22 June on UK label Young Turks. The follow up to his all-conquering 2015 triple album, The Epic, the double album once again features the saxophonist's distinctive mix of heavy grooves, powerful solos and cosmic jazz influences, including strings and choir, with his West Coast Get Down band in full-voice throughout its 16 tracks.

The album will be his second release for the UK based Young Turks label (a subsidiary to XL Recordings, home to Radiohead and Jack White) following his Harmony Of Difference EP from last year, in what will be a significant move to a British imprint and further evidence that larger labels are now signing jazz artists.

Washington and his band are setting out on a 60-plus date world tour, beginning this Sunday with two shows at the Coachella Music Festival, before kicking off their four UK gigs with a show at the 3,000-capacity Roundhouse, London (2 May) then heading to Albert Hall, Manchester (4 May), Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow (5 May) and the Big Top, Cheltenham Jazz Festival (6 May). See the June issue of Jazzwise for an exclusive interview with Kamasi Washington.
