Shabaka Hutchings' Sons of Kemet [Lewojazz-TomP remaster]
Jazz Festival Willisau CH
Broadcast: 2015-12-04 SRF2 256/48k TS-file recorded by Lewojazz > i-Sound (44.1k wav)
Fine Lewojazz artwork is included - thanks !!
Another excellent TS-file recorded by Lewojazz, it had some deficiencies that were easily fixed to bring out
the true impact of this great performance by the new Kemet lineup.
Initially it is obvious that Cross is not quite as perfect on the beat as his predecessor, the great Oren
Marshall (who also played with Hutchings in Haden's LMO in the UK). However, the percussion duo definitely
have improved their ensemble playing and the whole group sound is now less jazzy and more powerful and rocking,
so overall it is probably Kemet's most enjoyable performance.
TomP post on Dime, Dec.2015...Enjoy !!
