The Epic’s Critical Acclaim:
 
“Jazz fusion that rockets everywhere from electric Miles groove to Sun Ra

sputter, from velvety smooth to hardcore squawk – and still sounds as
future-minded as any hip-hop or experimental electronic LP out.” – Rolling Stone 
 
“…this saxophonist-composer is unusually well poised to secure the
attention of listeners who have previously been uninterested in jazz.” – Pitchfork 
 
“In a millennium largely absent of anything new or captivating in the jazz idiom, Washington has just unleashed a musical hydra grounded in respect and intimate knowledge of the past and striking far out into a hopeful future.” – Variety 

“…the leading figure in a new Los Angeles jazz scene…” – The New York Times
“The band’s sound is immediate. It pummels like punk and
captures the audience like a hymn. Washington doesn’t so much play
the sax as he preaches with it.” – Consequence of Sound
“…continually committed to experimenting with a brand of jazz
that resonates with their own generation’s lived experience.” – NPR
“What Washington accomplished wasn’t pastiche.
It was banging, booming, swingin, defiantly modern music
with runaway-train momentum.” – The Los Angeles Times
