This is jazz, but it’s not your father’s jazz. Sons of Kemet’s Your Queen Is a Reptile is a fusion of sorts. Sons of Kemet are leading the charge in the “UK Jazz Wave,” and there’s a lot going on here with just tuba, saxophone, drums, and sometimes voice. “Queen” rocks and grooves over African and Caribbean rhythms, the sound is deeply soulful.
