Glastonbury 2016 - The Ones To Watch - T-30 Days: Kamasi Washington

Over the next 30 days, as we count down to the start of this year's Glastonbury Festival, I'll be highlighting one act a day that's on my 'to do' list. I doubt if I'll get to see them all (plans at Glastonbury have a habit of being changed at a moment's notice) but it's good to have something to aim for.

First up is jazz sensation Kamasi Washington, Playing on the West Holts stage, his powerfully modern take on jazz has seen him collaborate with both Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar (is it too much to hope for a K Dot special appearance?). Never one to take the easy path, his mammoth 3 hour, triple cd from last year truly lives up to its title 'The Epic'. If you've got a couple of hours to spare then immerse yourself in the full concert above, or if not try the shorter 'Re Run Home' below, which will only take up 14 minutes of your busy day.

Come back tomorrow for another recommendation.
