Less than a month after releasing their collaborative Dinner Party album with Robert Glasper and 9th WonderTerrace Martin and Kamasi Washington have shared Racism on Trial, a three part music series written with rapper Denzel Curry.

Martin, Washington, and Curry joined forces earlier this summer to write Racism on Trial for Black Power Live, a virtual music festival presented by Jamcard and Form that raised funds for Crenshaw Dairy Market, Trap Heals, Transgender Law Center, Sankofa.org, and Black Men Build. The series contains three thought-provoking movements that include contributions from Robert Glasper, Alex IsleyPaul CornishJonathan PinsonDominique Sanders, and more.

The first movement, titled “The Voice of King Nipsey”—paying tribute to the late rapper Nipsey Hussle—begins with a spoken word intro from Curry. Here, Curry links together rhymes that delve into the issues of racial injustice, police brutality, rape culture, and the escalation of violence by the state. From there, Martin starts off with a slowly building saxophone solo before Cornish (piano) and Pinson (drums) join him. Around the three-minute mark the rest of the band joins in and the tempo picks up. Over the next seven minutes viewers are treated to an exploratory jazz movement full of atmospheric peaks, tension-building valleys, and an excellent drum solo. Part two of the first movement picks up the tempo from the last and sees Washington take center stage. Over 23 minutes, Washington and the rest of the group provide upbeat improv that any fan of music could appreciate and enjoy.

Titled “Any Day Could Be Our Last”, the second movement begins much like the first, with a spoken-word intro from Curry. Curry offers a more introspective verse on the second movement before Alex Isley takes over with some vocal work of her own. Overall much slower than the first movement, strings and chimes are prominent on “Any Day Could Be Our Last”, with peaks built by Isley’s vocals.

“Welcome to the day n*ggaz took over,” says Curry at the beginning of the third movement, before Kamasi puts his saxophone to use. After a 90-second musical intro, the energy shifts entirely on the movement titled “Pig Feet”. A quick drum fill signals Curry to come back in, and for the first time in the entire series he raps with the band behind him. After his verse, rappers Daylyt and G Perico take a verse of their own, each having a different feel from the last. Finally, Washington leads the rest of the band into the last section before they end on a crescendo.
