Kamasi Washington and Herbie Hancock are joining forces. Today, the mighty jazz artists announced that they're heading out on a joint tour this summer. The initial ten dates kick off in Virginia and wrap in August in Berkley. Last year, Hancock told the San Diego Union Tribune that Washington would feature on his new record (alongside the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus).
