Kamasi Washington has released a trailer for his just-announced concert film, Live at the Apollo Theater, which drops February 6th on Amazon Prime Video (via Amazon Music).
The Michael Garber-directer project chronicles the jazz artist’s headlining set at the renowned New York venue in February 2019. The trailer previews the unbelievable performance, as Washington praises the Apollo Theater as “one of the greatest stages there is.”
In a statement, Washington says that the performance allows him to achieve “one of the greatest honours that a musician can have.” He then continued by saying, “When I walked down 125th Street from my hotel in Harlem and saw my name on the marquee, I almost couldn’t believe it. 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.”
