Burn

Sons Of Kemet

Seldom has a band on the British jazz scene created a buzz before releasing an album, but through their live shows Sons of Kemet have done just that. A MOBO award winning 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 have gone on to impress many with their live shows, whether it be in session for BBC Radio 3's Jazz On 3, at this year's Cheltenham Jazz Festival or in collaboration with the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the 2012 London Jazz Festival. In 2013 Sons of Kemet won a MOBO award for 'Best Jazz Act' and 'Album of the year' by The Arts Desk and nominated for 'Album of the Year' by the Quietus and Gilles Peterson. Their debut album is therefore much anticipated and rest assured that Burn delivers on every level. In short, the combination of these four mighty creative forces has yielded music that is powerful, lyrical and, above all, fiercely original.
