7digital What we said: The king of the current jazz scene is back with album number two, and it's as smooth and engrossing as you'd expect - but it's more overtly political this time around. Los Angeles saxophonist Kamasi Washington shot to fame following his work on To Pimp A Butterfly, and his latest feels in keeping with the searing commentary of that release, dealing in impassioned reality and celestial imagination. A double album, the rallying cries on the Earth record are met with dreamy aspirations on the Heaven disc. It's not as serious as that might imply though - both albums cascade with sleazy '70s-film-soundtrack-esque sounds that are a lot of fun. On Heaven and Earth Kamasi Washington proves himself and his band to be more ambitious and immersive than ever.
