Shabaka and the Sons of Kemet

Jez Nelson presents saxophonist and Radio 3 New Generation Artist Shabaka Hutchings with new band Shabaka and the Sons of Kemet in a specially-recorded session.

Jez Nelson presents saxophonist and BBC New Generation Artist Shabaka Hutchings with new band Shabaka and the Sons of Kemet in a specially recorded session for Jazz on 3. Hutchings is one of the most diverse musicians on the UK jazz scene, playing with artists such as 'post-jazz' group Polar Bear and the hip hop-influenced Soweto Kinch, as well as on the free-jazz circuit. His electronics-cum-reggae trio Zed-U featured on Jazz on 3 last year, while Sons of Kemet has a street-music feel and an unusual line-up, including two drummers (Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford) and tuba player Oren Marshall.

Also on the programme, a roundup of the latest album releases with guest Kevin Le Gendre.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Studio guest: Kevin Le Gendre
Producers: Rebecca Aitchison & Russell Finch.
