Sunday’s lineup, for example, was heavy on outliers — and brilliant ones at that. Though Pitchfork is not a jazz festival, it felt like one on this day with commanding performances from the Sun Ra Arkestra, resplendant in bejeweled gowns as they turned jazz history into an Afrofuturistic journey, and Thundercat, a six-string bass monster who could sing with butterfly delicacy or engage his power trio with dazzling dexterity. Saxophonist Kamasi Washington brought his father Rickey to the stage to play a deeply nuanced solo on a 13-minute version of the perennial “Cherokee,” and he steered his band through a set that obliterated musical boundaries. The headliner, FKA Twigs, was just as difficult to categorize, with her mix of performance art and electro-soul, accompanied by elaborate choreography that underlined her background as a classically trained dancer.
