Jamie Cullum plays an hour of jazz music ranging from its heritage to its future.
This week, Jamie has exclusive BBC Maida Vale session tracks from Sons Of Kemet, one of the most exciting groups in British jazz at the moment.
The saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings leads the group with an unusual line-up featuring Oren Marshall on tuba and two drummers, Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford. They play tracks from their debut album Burn ahead of their appearance at this year's London Jazz Festival.
