O’s Notes: Sons of Kemet are a British jazz band made up of Theon Cross (tuba), Tom Skinner (d), Eddie Hick (d) and leader, saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings.“Your Queen Is A Reptile“is their third album. It has a lot of brass and fiery percussion to give us that good old New Orleans style funk, a party-ready jazz style. Guest vocalist Joshua Idehen provides rap on top that provides yet another dimension. The Sons of Kemet have their own groove; a loyal following and they are on a roll!
