Ancora carichi per l’intervista che qualche settimana fa ci ha concesso, torniamo a parlare del saxofonista Kamasi Washington. L’occasione ce la dà la diffusione via podcast di un’intervista da lui rilasciata al comico Marc Maron per la sua serie WTF with….
“The amazing thing that I was struck with first was that he was so hands on. Day one, he was like, ‘Okay Kamasi, write some stuff to this.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, do you want to give me the files and I’ll go home and come back?’ He’s like, ‘No, you’ve got to write this here. You don’t get to leave with anything.’”
“I would see him do superhuman stuff. One day, Terrace Martin brought in a new beat, and I saw Kendrick just create a whole song while he was hearing it for the first time. And it felt like a complete song. I was like, did you just create that right now while I was sitting here as you were listening to it for the first time? Wow. That’s amazing.”
Ad essere sinceri, che Lamar fosse in possesso di poteri da superuomo, era una cosa che già sospettavamo. In questa intervista il gigante buono Kamasi ce ne ha dato anche la conferma.
