WASHINGTON'S MONUMENT

Jazz breakout Kamasi Washington—who helped shape the sound of Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly and whose sprawling The Epic was The New York Times' pick for 2015 Album of the Year—celebrates inking a publishing pact with Big Deal Music. The pubco's Dave Ayers grew an enormous jazzbo beard for the occasion and performed a few of the deal's more abstruse clauses in scatted form, like, shoo-be-doo-all-rights-in-perpetuity, man. Seen bracing for the bass solo are (l-r) Washington, Atom Factory's Banch Abagaze, Big Deal's Brigitte Green and Ayers.
