London's Son of Kemet return with the dazzling follow up to their acclaimed 2018 album "Your Queen Is A Reptile", their second release on esteemed & legendary jazz label Impulse Records (celebrating their 60th anniversary this year!). "Black To The Future" perhaps isn't a huge departure from "Queen.." but the band dials back the fury ever so slightly, grooving MORE in the pocket. The righteous fury & anger omnipresent in the songs simmers, rather than boils over, letting bandleader & sax player Shabaka Hutchings really blow in an engaging post-Coltrane/Joe Henderson style. Tuba player Theon Cross & drummers Ton Skinner & Eddie Hick create a dizzying stew of polyrhythms incorporating Carribean music, rock, jazz (obv), & African Music. This group is at the forefront of an exciting new wave of cross-pollinating jazz scenes of London/Chicago alongside folks like UK's Ill Considered & Chicago's own Makaya McCraven & Angel Bat Dawid (who - along with Moor Mother - collaborates on "Pick Up Your Burning Cross"). Take our word for it, they are the REAL DEAL & this one comes with the highest possible recommendation!
