Sax player Shabaka Hutchings was born in London 1984, his parents were natives from Barbados. Wisdon Of Elders was recorded in South Africa in one day, and started as a tribute to the former Cape Town jazz scene back in the late 70s - with the classic Nguni rhtythms. Musically it's some kind of hymn, or even a psalm to the era when jazz was part of the freedom fight. It's a very spiritual and moody album, a very structural but also full om improvisation. The eight piece group has a lot of horns and diverse percussion. This is a true adventure.
