Kamasi Washington has announced his upcoming concert film Kamasi Washington Live at the Apollo Theater, an Amazon Music film streaming on February 6.

Directed and edited by Michael Garber, Live at the Apollo Theater was filmed in 2019 and features the jazz saxophonist’s talented band Next Step, along with appearances from DJ Battlecat and vocalist Dwight Trible. “Playing at the Apollo Theater is one of the greatest honors that a musician can have. When I walked down 125th Street from my hotel in Harlem and saw my name on the marquee I almost couldn’t believe it,” Washington said in a statement. “To be a part of that prestigious group of brilliant musical minds was truly humbling for me. To say that night was one of the most amazingly special nights of my life is a grave understatement. I’m so happy and thankful to be able to share this moment with people all over the world. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!”

To celebrate the announcement, Washington shared the 12-minute track “The Bombshell’s Waltz,” a previously-unheard piece from his self-released 2007 album, The Proclamation.
