Kamasi Washington
'Get Lit'
24 June 2024 13 mins 13s

This Kamasi Washington promo lasts over thirteen minutes, (though a decent chunk of that is reserved for credits). The bulk of it revolves around Saul Williams and Patrice Quinn, who lock eyes in the Leimert Park area of Los Angeles. This is where Washington got his start as a jazz musician, but 'Get Lit' is more nebulous than nostalgic.

As both director and choreographer, Jenn Nkiru knows what kind of tour she wants viewers to go on. No map, no arrows—just the pensive movements of Williams and that stare from Quinn. We pity whoever bumps into her on the street and fails to apologise.

Washington, meanwhile, is joined by Parliament-Funkadelic veteran George Clinton and rapper D Smoke. The way they come and go suggests they flit between our world and a place too cool for us mere mortals to comprehend.
