Preview: Shabaka Hutchings’ OneFest @ Leadmill & EartH (Sheffield & London; Saturday 14th and Saturday 21st September 2019)

shabaka OneFest

If the London jazz scene has a face, that’s the one of Shabaka Hutchings. The saxophonist, clarinettist and bandleader has indeed surged as one of the most popular interpreters of the movement, playing solo or collaborating and enriching the work of many of its actors, and becoming its ambassador around the world.

So, it’s no surprise that the British-Barbadian musician is also the protagonist of OneFest, a brand-new festival happening on 14th September at the Leadmill in Sheffield and one week later (21st September) at EartH in Hackney. The event, meant to support and promote some of the most promising younger talents of the British jazz scene, will offer a daytime and night-time programme.

If the former will feature workshops, panels, and Q&As about the state of affairs of the UK music scene and its issues, the latter will showcase that scene, hosting musicians like Maisha, Nat Birchall and Okamu, Herbert, Skinner + Byron Wallen and many more.

Don’t miss the chance to get an in-depth and unadulterated look at and listen to the UK jazz condition, thanks to this forward-looking project.

Event Review: We Out Here Festival (Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire; Thursday 15th to Sunday 18 August 2019)

An inaugural festival is always going to be packed with risk and suspense, and after the downpour that Friday night experienced, a breath was held in anticipation of Saturday’s events. However, it is with sheer delight I report that the proceedings seemingly went ahead seamlessly. Saturday I have to jump…

Event Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

The concept of an outdoor jazz festival hardly conjures images of glitter-filled Glastonbury excitement, a young hip crowd and dance-fuelled elation. However, previously exclusive jazz appears to be undergoing a fashion revolution and the grounds of Glynde Place hinted at this. Love Supreme, the UK’s only three-day greenfield jazz festival…

Interview: Shabaka Hutchings – Sons of Kemet (August 2016)

Sons of Kemet are no longer a fresh faced new group on the London music scene. After five years and two successful albums, their name has spread far-and-wide becoming a sought after act. Their music is more eclectic and harder to define than ever, but that doesn’t prevent it is enthralling. In…
