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'.
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.
Favourite Track: Will You Love Me Tomorrow
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.
