We meet up with Jazz superforce Shabaka Hutchings in Utrecht and at Worldwide FM and a Steam Down in London, to discuss signing with the acclaimed Impulse! label, album themes and his curated program at Le Guess Who?. "It feels like signing with Impulse has given validity to the way I've perceived my music act" he says. "The lesson Sibusile Xaba has taught me is that music is supposed to be about joy, rather than fun. It's supposed to be a joyous celebration."

This year's Le Guess Who? takes place from November 8-11, and as with recent years, Utrecht's Le Guess Who? festival will this year invite a handful of people to guest curate parts of the line-up. Shabaka Hutchings is one of those people and the festival has highlighted his work via a new video portrait.      WATCH via The Quietus
