Over the last decade, Shabaka Hutchings has established himself as a central figure in the London jazz scene. Hutchings has a restlessly creative spirit, playing in a variety of groups, including the uniquely spiritual and powerful Shabaka & the Ancestors. The group draws on their South African lineage to bring their own slant to American jazz. In early 2020, the group will return with their hotly anticipated second album, released on the iconic Impulse! label, home to the spiritual jazz legend John Coltrane.
