Saxophonist Kamasi Washington is one of the best musicians on the jazz scene right now and that status is well-deserved. Washington and band, who’ve been playing together since they were teenagers, are making genre-defying music on par with bebop greats like Coltrane and Davis. On top of pushing jazz to new heady heights, Washington has appeared on albums by hip-hop artists Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus, as well as served as Snoop Dogg’s live band. Those who caught Kamasi Washington’s set at Fuji Rock earlier this year will be happy to catch him in a more intimate setting at Billboard Live.
How much: ¥9,000-10,500; two shows per night at 7pm & 9:30pm
