Product description

Product Description

Seldom has a band on the British jazz scene created such a buzz before releasing an album, but Sons of Kemet have done just that. A super-group of sorts led by clarinetist, saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings with Oren Marshall on tuba and both Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford on drums, Sons of Kemet release their stunning debut album Burn. Although born in London, Hutchings spent most of his childhood in Barbados. On returning to the UK in 1999 he was soon heralded as an exceptional talent on the British jazz scene, not only playing with luminaries such as Soweto Kinch, Courtney Pine and The Heliocentrics but also being named a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. However, he felt the music he was playing lacked the Caribbean slant of his background and thus, Sons of Kemet (Kemet is one of the first recognised names for ancient Egypt and its last Nubian king was called Shabaka) was born. It's partly the deployment of two drummers - and two powerhouse drummers at that - gives Sons of Kemet their compelling and infectious sound. Skinner and Rochford's visceral exchange of rhythmic ideas is an unforgettable, highly danceable experience. Throw into this one of the great wild cards of contemporary British music, Oren Marshall on tuba, and you have a wonderfully unorthodox configuration. A curiously addictive album that manages to appeal to both heart and mind, there is little to compare it with.

Review

'Recommended new release' --Drummer Magazine

"an album that makes the perfect storm of Seb Rochford's and Tom Skinner's collective percussion sound, as if it's moved into your house" --The Guardian ****

"Deeply strange but also compelling" -- The Telegraph


"Unlike some of their peers, Sons Of Kemet can move from melodic maelstroms to moving meditations in a moment. Driven by Marshall's droning tuba riffs, the drivingly hypnotic 'Going Home' gives way to probably one of the most beautiful and haunting ballads in any genre this year, 'Adiona's Lullaby'" -- The Quietus


"this is mesmerising trance music of great power" -- The Independent


"The music connects New Orleans marching band and Jamaican dance rhythms while also reaching further back into the African tradition, and drummers Seb Rochford and Tom Skinner lend both a streetwise edge and an unashamedly melodic undercurrent. Repeated listens reveal more and more detail on an album that grabs the attention from the word go and - beware - may well have an addictive effect."

--The Herald Scotland
