Odyssey - Nubya Garcia

The multi-award-winning tenor saxophonist, bandleader and composer Nubya Garcia is back with her sophomore album, Odyssey, her second release on the Concord Jazz imprint, out in September 2024. The album is produced by Garcia in collaboration with the celebrated producer Kwes. Garcia returns with Joe Armon-Jones (keys), Daniel Casimir (bass), Sam Jones (drums), Jansen Santana (percussion), Sheila Maurice-Grey (trumpet), Rosie Turton (trombone), Chineke! Orchestra (strings), and esperanza spalding, Richie Seivwright and Georgia Anne Muldrow (vocals).

The album follows her 2020 debut album, Source, a critically-acclaimed work described by The New York Times as “a sweeping set of jazz with Afro-Caribbean influences that funnels a life’s worth of experiences into an hourlong listen.” Calling it a “stunning introduction,” Pitchfork, in its Best New Music review, said 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.”
