Description

On this London group’s first LP for Impulse!, saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings uses jazz’s cultural memory as a rich language that informs an entirely new conversation. - Pitchfork

On Sons of Kemet’s third studio album, and first under the impulse! label, Shabaka Hutchings and his band incorporate sounds of global jazz all while keeping a consistent and pulsing groove throughout the record. Shabaka Hutchings is a saxophonist, composer, and band leader based in the UK. He is the newest signing to the impulse! label, and he is in three prominent jazz outfits – Sons of Kemet, Shabaka & The Ancestors, and The Comet Is Coming.  Sons of Kemet is the iconoclastic mix of tenor sax, tuba and double drums. On this third studio album, they bring a genre defying approach that celebrates the restless exploration of identity within the Caribbean diaspora within the U.K. Your Queen is a Reptile was recorded in London with a host of guests spanning the breadth of the U.K. scene including jungle legend Congo Natty and poet Joshua Idehen.
