Saxophonist and clarinetist Shabaka Hutchings is a real connoisseur of sounds and fusions, and a true explorer. Each of his new musical expeditions pushes him further towards the top of today’s jazz scene… Born in London in 1984, he grew up under the Barbadian sun before moving back to England in 1999 where he joined the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Here, he caught the attention of saxophonist Soweto Kinch and started hanging out with big names like Courtney Pine and Jerry Dammers from the Specials. In 2011, Shabaka launched Sons of Kemet, a surprising quartet featuring a tuba and two drums. A complete oddity, halfway between a marching band and a chamber orchestra, that blends jazz, Caribbean and African music, Egyptian influences, and flavours from New Orleans and Ethiopia. The aptly titled The Comet Is Coming – no relations to Sons Of Kemet – is another adaptation of jazz language. But does it still qualify as jazz? It doesn’t really matter. As a sort of electro-drip-fed Sun Ra of the third millennium, Shabaka Hutchings – who calls himself King Shabaka here – is supported by a duo composed of Danalogue on the keyboards and Betamax on drums and percussions. It’s a rather avant-garde programme set to overpowered percussive rhythmic and hypnotising brass improvisations. Sun Ra, as we said… It’s hard not to mention him who was idolised (or hated) for his lengthy compositions and mind-blowing, almost psychedelic performances as well as for the odd cosmic philosophy he preached. The Comet is Coming’s second album, Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery, remains profoundly attached to its time, in which Shabaka injects his philosophy with contemporary elements far removed from master Ra’s semantic like when he hands over the microphone to rapper/spoken-word performer Kate Tempest on Blood Of The Past. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Label Impulse! has unearthed from its archives this previously unreleased concert from November 2007 between two absolute giants: Charlie Haden and Brad Mehldau. The bass player, who passed away in 2014, met the pianist for the first time in the early nineties. The spark was instantaneous, and the two virtuosos regularly worked together, both on stage and in studio. But never in duo. This 2007 live was the first time. At the invitation of Heidelberg Enjoy Jazz Festival, in Germany, Haden and Mehldau agreed to perform together in the magical setting of a church, the Christuskirche in Mannheim. And while the result was stunning, the tapes remained in storage for over a decade… "It’s thrilling to play with someone who improvises like this”, recalls the American pianist. “After all, this is the guy who did it first on his instrument. Those early records of the Ornette Coleman Quartet like This is Our Music or Change of the Century were not “free” in the sense that they abandoned the principles of harmony. They often were free of a fixed harmonic schema, though, and Charlie was improvising the harmony, from the ground up!"Above all else, it’s the depth of their complicity that shines through on this recording. The ease with which Charlie Haden and Brad Mehldau integrate space and silence in their exchanges is sublime. In terms of repertoire, they opted for classics  (Charlie Parker, Irving Berlin, Johnny Mercer, Gershwin, Kern…) that they stroke with their fingertips. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

For his début on the label impulse!, Shabaka Hutchings is performing with Sons Of Kemet, the group which probably resembles him the most. A prestigious orange and black label, at one time very politically engaged: it seems impulse! and Hutchings were meant for each other. “So many of my musical heroes including John Coltrane, Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders have been housed under this record label, it’s an honour to join the family.”, the star said of the blossoming contemporary British jazz scene... The brilliant saxophonist is turning out project and pieces one after another, (Sun Ra Arkestra, Heliocentrics, Anthony Joseph, Floating Points) and is voraciously working his way through bands: The Comet Is Coming, Melt Yourself Down, Shabaka And The Ancestors, and now Sons Of Kemet, which have been going since 2011. Born in London in 1984, Hutchings spent his youth in Barbados where he studied classical clarinet before playing in calypso and reggae groups, later to be joined by Soweto Kinch, who plays here with co-conspirators Theon Cross on tuba and two drummers, Tom Skinner and Eddie Hick. His quartet's atypical jazz pays little heed to stylistic boundaries as it celebrates the way that they Caribbean diaspora in the UK constantly explores its identity. Recorded in London with guests like Jungle legend Congo Natty or poet Joshua Idehen, this third album from Sons Of Kemet is also a manifesto denouncing what Hutchings and his friends call the injustice of the British monarchy, an oppressive political system that they say underpins social inequalities and racial discrimination. Rejecting the unequal system embodied by the Queen of England, they propose an alternative, celebrating other Queens. "Our Queens walked among us. Our Queens led by action, by example, our Queens listened. Our Queens made bright futures out of cruel and unfair pasts." Every composition on the album pays homage to a different queen: My Queen is Ada Eastman, My Queen is Harriet Tubman, My Queen is Angela Davis, My Queen is Yaa Asantewaa. Musically, Your Queen Is A Reptile delves as much into the musical heritage of New Orleans as that of London, the Caribbean or the Middle East. Even rap, spoken word and dub are brought in to enrich this protean jazz which lends a real and contemporary identity to the impulse! label, which is synonymous with stylistic battles from the 1960s and 1970s.
