In scoring Becoming, director Nadia Hallgren's Michelle Obama documentary, saxophonist, composer, and arranger Kamasi Washington reveals a side of his musical universe we've not encountered.

Artist: Kamasi Washington

Genre: Cinematic/Soundtrack

Label: Young

Release date:

He drew inspiration from Hallgren's counsel, her narrative frames, and Obama's life and musical tastes -- he listened to her playlists in preparation. These 15 cues clock in at just over 30 minutes, offering an enforced brevity that presented a challenge: His recordings can reach three hours. To help fulfill his vision, Washington enlisted longtime compatriots the West Coast Get Down collective.
