From Wikipedia:

The Epic is the third studio album by American jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington and his first on a major-label. It was released on May 5, 2015, by the Brainfeeder record label.

Upon its release, The Epic was widely celebrated by music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from critics, the album received an average score of 83, which indicates “universal acclaim”, based on 7 reviews.[3] the AllMusic critic Thom Jurek described the album as “21st century jazz as accessible as it is virtuosic — feel matters to Washington”, and further wrote, “Holistic in breadth and deep in vision, it provides a way into this music for many, and challenges the cultural conversation about jazz without compromising or pandering.”[4] Russell Warfield of Drowned in Sound described the album as “wonderful stuff” and that the record “deserves a high score by any standards of evaluation”.
