Introducing: Nubya Garcia

As the hotbed for UK jazz talent continues to expand at a rapid pace, Nubya Garcia is the latest musician to separate herself as a burgeoning artist of genuine star quality.

A familiar face to some, aside from her solo work she also plays in all female septet Nérija and alongside Moses Boyd and Theon Cross in the Theon Cross Trio, and was nominated for Breakthrough Act of the Year at this year’s Jazz FM Awards.

But it’s her recent Nubya 5ive release on Jazz Re:freshed that really grabbed our attention, which she performed live at a sold out Jazz Cafe this month, with an all star cast which included the aformentioned Boyd and Cross as well as keys player Joe Armon-Jones and drummer Femi Koleoso, both of Ezra Collective.
