Kamaal Williams' "New Heights" Video Is A Martial Arts Masterclass


March 06, 2019

You may know him by many names: Kamaal Williams, Henry Wu or one half of Yussef Kamaal, but after releasing his album The Return last year, it seems like the torchbearer for British jazz music is here to stay as he's back once more with his brand new single "New Heights". Directed by Greg Barnes, the video kicks off in a red-lit room and is reminiscent of old martial arts movies, subtitles and all. From the outset, the music takes centre stage with shots of Williams on the keys — in preparation of a fight — while the sounds of piano loops and a double bass play in free-flowing glory, proving that sometimes less is definitely more.
