Seldom has a band on the British jazz scene created such a
buzz before releasing an album, but through their incendiary live shows
- and on-air support from the likes of Gilles Peterson on BBC 6music,
Jamie Cullum on BBC Radio 2 and even John Kennedy on XFM - Sons of Kemet have done just that. A super-group of sorts led by 29 year old clarinettist, saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings (also honoured as one of the BBC's New Generation Artists) with Oren Marshall on tuba and both Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford on drums. Exceptionally assured for a
debut album, Burn surely has to become one of the standout releases for 2013.
