Sons Of Kemet - Beyond the contemporary UK jazz scene
Led by composer and saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, London’s Sons of Kemet is an iconoclastic mix of tenor sax (Hutchins himself), tuba (Theon Cross who is considered as one of the most distinctive musicians in the new wave jazz) and double drums (Tom Skinner / Seb Rochford).
Your Queen is a Reptile, third studio album and first on Impulse! for the band, was recorded in London with a host of guests spanning the breadth of the UK scene including jungle legend Congo Natty and poet Joshua Idehen.
