Seldom has a band on the British jazz scene created such a buzz before releasing an album, but Sons of Kemet did just that. Originally released in 2013, Burn was one of the standout releases of that year, an album that makes the perfect storm of Seb Rochford's and Tom Skinner's collective percussion sound, as if it's moved into your house. Opening with the galloping-hooves drumming, pulpy tuba hook and Pharoah Sanders-like sax supplications of All Will Surely Burn, the album goes on to balance thunder and reflectiveness surprisingly evenly – maybe the result of a long gestation for saxophonist/clarinetist Shabaka Hutchings' Caribbean and African-inspired material.
