NUBYA GARCIA Quartet

When a jazz musician mentions "the club," you can usually infer that she's referring to a jazz club. Not so with Nubya Garcia, an emerging tenor saxophonist who has also cultivated a reputation as a DJ. More to the point, the energy of U.K. club culture resonates deeply for Garcia, not as some crossover digression but rather as the pulse of a lifeblood. - Nate Chinen of NPR

Recently nominated alongside contemporary peers like Thundercat, Cécile McLoren Salvant and Shabaka Hutchings for Breakthrough Artist of the Year by Jazz FM, the London-based saxophonist and composer, Nubya Garcia is one of the leading forces behind the resurgence of jazz-influenced sounds in the UK.

Raised in a creative environment built by a set of Caribbean parents, her brand of afro-tinged Jazz has made her a key component in a string of new and established groups: from work with MOBO Award-winning drummer, Moses Boyd, legendary Jungle producer and toaster, Congo Natty, through to her own works as part of six-piece, Maisha, and the Nérija septet. 

She's here tonight making her New Orleans debut with local risers, the McKenna Alicia Band

Hosted with our friends at Jazz Re:freshed
