I only wish there were more songs... "Ooh Child" though, is a perfect song from beginning to end.
The EP is also a really nice amalgamation of the sonic themes of both parts of heaven and earth.

The Kamasi Washington EP can be a powerful weapon—I think Harmony Of Difference is his best work—but this EP winds up feeling more like Heaven And Earth B-sides than it does its own unique thought.

This was a nice surprise on top of the already ridiculously long epic 'Heaven and Earth.' It loses significant points for "Will You Love Me Tomorrow," which is one of the few times for me where it feels like a Kamasi Washington song overstays its welcome. However, it does enough to regain some of those points with "My Family," a song that sounds superbly like a modern version of Art Blakey's Moanin'.

An almost 40 minute EP, of course, Kamasi is extremely talented no doubt, but this project just doesn't have the same sort of charm as his better works, a lot of these songs grow old fast, there's still some nice moments on here but this nowhere near Washington's best.

Best Track: The Secret of Jinsinson
Worst Track: My Family
