Watch Kamasi Washington pay tribute to George Michael

Watch Kamasi Washington pay tribute to George Michael

The avant garde jazz musician tried his hand at the smoothed saw solo in existence
Lorna Gray | Latest News

This weekend saw the prestigious BET Awards, celebrating the achievements of minorities within the entertainment world. Performances from the likes of SZA, DJ Khaled, Mary J Blige and many more graced the stage and among the long list of musicians offering their unbelievable talent was modern jazz icon Kamasi Washington.

Most will be familiar with his work on fellow performer Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, as his scattered style of avant garde jazz lays under K-Dot’s politically charged bars, making it one of the most stand out hip hop albums of the decade. Pairing up with El DeBarge, Washington performed his own take on what is arguably one of the most iconic saxophone solos in existence, as they paid tribute to the late George Michael in a beautifully smooth rendition of Careless Whisper.

Kamasi Washington is to treat the UK to his unique take on the genre, as he’ll be hitting Liverpool’s Arts Club on June 30th and Stylus Leeds on July 1st.
