Nubya Garcia UK
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.
