Bookmark and Share

Shabaka Hutchings has quickly been becoming one of the leaders of modern jazz and specifically of the London jazz renaissance that's been spreading outside of the UK and really catching on here in the States too. He leads the bands Sons of Kemet and Shabaka and the Ancestors, he has worthy solo work, he's played as a sideman for the Sun Ra Arkestra, Floating Points, Makaya McCraven, and more, and he's one third of The Comet Is Coming (alongside keyboardist Dan Leavers and drummer Max Hallett).

Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery, The Comet Is Coming's second album and first for the legendary Impulse! Records comes out this week, and the band will be in Austin for SXSW this week where they have three official shows. After that, a show on Monday, March 18 at Mercury Lounge and they'll play some headlining US shows before hitting Knoxville, TN's Big Ears Festival. They'll also be back in North America in June for Bonnaroo.
