“On ‘Source,’ [Nubya Garcia] weaves together so many threads so masterfully that she instantly establishes herself as a foundational voice in the larger, ongoing story of the London jazz scene. Her debut is a stunning introduction.”
- Pitchfork (‘Best New Music’)
“reaching into the past while planting itself firmly in the present, ‘Source’ reminds listeners to slow down and reconnect with themselves, their cultural histories and those closest to them"
- The New York Times
"a gorgeously refined tone — a burnished old-school cry that’s as muscular as it is romantic..."
- Rolling Stone
“the kind of convincing panache listeners would just follow anywhere.”
- NPR Music
“Throughout the set, her tone is gorgeous, her musical intuition perfect.”
- NPR Tiny Desk
Multi award-winning saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia is back with her much anticipated debut album, SOURCE. Her first release on Concord Records, under the iconic Concord Jazz imprint, has been received with wide critical acclaim. Following her album release, the London-based UK jazz player extraordinaire debuted on Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR, coming off the heels of a New York Times profile, a Pitchfork ‘Best New Music’ honor and a Rolling Stone ‘Album of the Month’ mention for the rising tenor saxophone player. The New York Times describes SOURCE as “a life’s worth of experiences into an hourlong listen,” while Q Magazine says “Elevated throughout by Garcia's immaculate phrasing, this is music that fuses the tradition and modern with real purpose.“
Garcia studied under pianist Nikki Yeoh at Camden Music, before joining Gary Crosby’s Tomorrow’s Warriors in her late teens and completed her training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music. She is a member of the experimental septet, Nerija, and has toured extensively internationally, playing in venues across Latin America, Asia, Europe, Australia, and the United States. Garcia’s reputation as a DJ is also burgeoning; she currently helms a hit radio residency on NTS and plays a growing number of live sets across Europe.
