All that jazz? The Mobo awards are failing the UK’s jazz scene – Shabaka Hutchings
The Comet is Coming and Sons of Kemet’s Shabaka Hutchings writes for the Guardian
“Great music will always be made by artists with or without industry acknowledgement, and the new face of jazz is every year steadying its message and sound. When the industry finally catches on to what it should be proud to proclaim as representative of a homegrown scene, it will be ready to take on the world stage.”
