The Real Life of Shabaka Hutchings
By Bobby Reed
British saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings exploded onto the jazz scene with that rare gift of getting hips to sway and minds to think. In his first DownBeat cover article, Hutchings talks about Black To The Future, the latest recording by his group Sons of Kemet, as well as a new book and being creative during the COVID-19 pandemic.
