Another modern jazz classic from Kamasi Washington and his amazing band gets a mesmerizing visual by Jenn Nkiru, as experimental as the music.

It's a single-shot and in many ways a still-life too, revealed in a dead-slow reverse zoom to reveal three night-gowned and sashed women performing in front of a flag - in fact, it's artist-director Larry Achiampong's work Pan-African Flag For The Relic Traveller. And then the zoom reverses to close in one face even more close-up than before. 

The track is Hub-Tones, taken from Kamasi Washington's second album Heaven and Earth, out on Young Turks.
