In 2015 post bop jazz pioneer Kamasi Washington released a studio album spanning three volumes that clocked in at 170 minutes and was aptly named The Epic. This critically acclaimed debut followed years of collaborating with and playing for the likes of Thundercat, Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu and Snoop Dogg.
