If 2019 was the year Shabaka Hutchings cemented himself as a jazz figure to pay close attention to via The Comet Is Coming's Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery, 2020 is the year he cements himself as one of the genre's most adventurous, genius bandleaders, as his new album with his Johannesburg octet Shabaka and The Ancestors is a thrilling, challenging, stunning record that calls to mind classics by Eddie Gale and Archie Shepp, filtered through the cacophony of modern life and Fela Kuti. It's this year's jazz album to beat, awe-inspiring in its depth.

Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.
If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.
Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.
