Yussef Kamaal

Thundercat (also at #BKS17), Kamasi Washington and Shabaka are just a handful of names keeping contemporary jazz fresh and innovative. Feel free to add Yussef Kamaal, the group formed by Kamaal “Henry Wu” Williams and Yussef Dayes, to that list. Yussuf Kamaal’s inquisitive long player Black Focus brings a spiritual, funky jazz framework to the table, with a modern twist.
