Multi-award winning saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia presents SOURCE, her first release on the iconic Concord Jazz imprint. The album is produced by Garcia in collaboration with the celebrated producer Kwes (Nerija, Bobby Womack, Solange). Garcia returns with Joe Armon-Jones (keys), Daniel Casimir (bass) and Sam Jones (drums). A collection of sonic mantras to live by, SOURCE is a deeply personal offering in which Garcia maps cartographies around the coordinate points of her identity, her family histories, grief, afro-diasporic connections and collectivism. SOURCE is fundamentally about getting grounded within yourself, so that you can be present with others. It's about a realization of personal and collective power: the evolution of the saxophonist’s values as she re-connects with herself, her roots and her community. Garcia digs deep to present an album with a global outlook: from London to Bogota, Caura to Georgetown, it's a record drawing inspiration from the many places Garcia calls home.

This album kicks off with a track called ‘Pace’ and keeps it going as it doesn’t let up on the 3 tracks on side 1 and the title track ‘Source’ is a reggae infused Jazz track for the feet. Side 2 opens with ‘Stand With Each Other’ and features 3 : Mr Maurice, Cassie Kinoshi and Ritchie Seivwright. La Cumbria Me Esta Llanmdo ft. La Perla is a slice of South America and i immediately it conjures up people dancing in my mind. The album will take a few plays to fully take it all in as there’s a lot to listen to as the lady has woven quite a few influences into the album. Nubya plays and in doing so also lets the rest of the band have their roles without stifling them.
Not fully finished this review but will add more once I've fully taken in the album, which usually takes a couple of weeks for me. However on the first couple of listens it's a great album release.
I think this might win an award or two and it’s in my top 10 for 2020 so don't be surprised if it wins best jazz album of 2020.
Finally the artwork is beautiful, great photo and I love the colours they have used, which are all very earthy. The vinyl is 2xLP and I had to crank up the sound on my amp to get the full resonance of the music.
