Nubya Garcia UK
Website Jazz Re:freshed
New gem of the English Jazz scene, saxophonist Nubya Garcia’s first two projects brilliantly revealed her to the world. «Nubya’s 5ive» and «When We Are» push modal jazz towards a stunning afro-groove, borrowing here and there a few hip-hop breaks and Caribbean sonorities that reflect her origins and family culture. Two meticulous EPs, produced by some of the best musicians in London, from pianist Joe-Armon Jones to bass player Dan Casimir, drummers Femi Koloeso and Moses Boyd. After having roamed the clubs alongside numerous outfits, Nubya Garcia finally affirms herself as a composer and leader of a full-blown project that will keep people talking for the months to come.
