Although this release is Nubya Garcia’s first real solo album, the artist is accustomed to being showered with praise, awards, prizes, projects and collaborations. At 29 years old, the Londoner is undoubtedly one of the major players on the new British jazz scene and her colourful, full-bodied saxophone playing has already resonated on numerous recordings such as those of the groups Nérija and Maisha, and on two thirds of We Out Here (2018), the iconic compilation album from Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label which united the big names on the contemporary scene. It is with some of these musicians that she has recorded Source. Joined by Joe Armon-Jones (keys), Daniel Casimir (bass) and Sam Jones (drums), Garcia was certainly well-equipped to push the boundaries of contemporary jazz and the UK music scene. As is often the case with contemporary UK musicians, Afro-Caribbean and urban sounds come to influence the rhythms as well as the melodies. Such a fusion is often present in UK jazz albums which also have their own unique flavours. The influence of Herbie Hancock (from the Headhunters period/early Columbia Records) is never far away (Inner Game, The Message Continues). This sensation is amplified by the funky playing of the organ and synth magician, Joe Armon-Jones.

Award-winning saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia has announced her latest project, a fully reimagined remix album titled Source ⧺ We Move. The project restructures and repurposes works from the musician’s debut solo album Source, which arrived in 2020.

Source ⧺ We Move will be released via Concord Records on October 22. The album will feature remixes from Georgia Anne Muldrow, KeiyaA, Moses Boyd, and more. Alongside the announcement, Garcia has shared the Kaidi Tatham remix of “La Cumbia Me Está Llamando” featuring La Perla.

Tatham is credited as an innovator in the movement of Broken Beat, a sound utilized in this remix that is defined by its soulful, syncopated beats.
