The jazz saxophonist composer and band-leader brings us his first piece of new music since his universally acclaimed 2015 debut album The Epic. Harmony of Difference premiered as part of the Whitney Museum of American Art 2017 Biennial alongside a film by A.G. Rojas and also featuring artwork by Kamasi Washington’s sister Amani Washington. The new music is an original six part suite that explores the philosophical possibilities of the musical technique known as “counterpoint ” which Washington defines as “the art of balancing similarity and difference to create harmony between separate melodies.” Each of the first five movements is its own unique composition. "Truth" the sixth movement fuses all five compositions into one simultaneous performance. With both the 5 separate tracks and the collective whole of "Truth" Washington has yet again showcased his ability to create majestic contemporary jazz that it just about as joyous and accessible as it gets!
