Man, it feels good to see new jazz artists getting major media attention and significant bookings in America and elsewhere. Sons of Kemet leader Shabaka Hutchings recently appeared on the cover of taste-making English magazine the Wire, and now his group is touring the US behind the renowned Your Queen Is a Reptile LP. Using an unusual lineup of clarinet, saxophone, tuba, and two drummers, Sons of Kemet alchemize jazz, rock, and myriad African and Caribbean folk styles in a crucible of daring and effusive instrumental telepathy. Not unlike the great ensembles currently working with Chicago’s International Anthem label, Sons of Kemet compose tracks that combine the cerebral with the visceral, resulting in fresh mutations that are too sweaty and raw for jazz’s Marsalis-brothers contingent.
