    They saying its basically gave exposure to the most praised jazz album of the year as Kamasi Washington has credits on TPAB. :sweatt:

    its true though, this is the first time in years that I see a jazz album (and its his debut) being discussed like this by publications and all that s--- :daps:

    He definitely boosted it, to some extent.

    Kamasi, who just dropped a universall acclaimed jazz album appeared on Kendrick Lamar's new album.... Kamasi was then name dropped a lot in reference to this album, so hip hop heads who might not normally check out a jazz album decided to based on this association. I think this also relates as to why this album is so hyped up, because it is a discovery album for those who might not normally listen to jazz, and as such they might not be very familiar with Pharoah Sanders and the stuff he did back then.

    scared of what? they're doing their job & dropping facts.

    I'm not a jazz expert but I love it, it's actually my favorite genre and anyone interested in jazz music should know this.

    Those who worked on this album are widely praised as the best jazz artists of the past 5 years but most of them are still underground artists...so working on tpab actually gave them a lot of exposure. Just look at kamasi washington, dude had a lot of buzz in the jazz community and his album was on almost every end year list. It would have never happened if it wasn't for TPAB. Don't you agree?

    this thread/op/article have nothing to do with the quality of TPAB.

    its literally just saying that yeah because kendrick, a huge rapper, dropped an album influenced by jazz, it helped jazz become a talking point

    well, duh.
