Nubya's 5ive

A 6 track crossover jazz album (48m 10s) — released May 17th 2017 on Jazz re:freshed

Nubya's 5ive has been acclaimed by critics and fans alike with the young star experiencing a meteoric rise within a scene that knows its music.

This first album sold so quickly it had to be repressed within a month. With a sell-out launch gig at the Jazz Cafe, a rapturous accolade at Jazz re:fest 2017, ridiculously positive reviews of her performance at SXSW, this album showcases one of this decade's most phenomenal talents. This album is currently changing hands for exorbitant sums on Discogs.

Jazz FM agree and awarded her Breakthrough Act Of The Year 2018 and the press have also have good things to say:

"She plays in a few collectives, but her solo work is already collectible (the first pressing of last year's Nubya's 5ive EP reportedly sold out on vinyl in one day)" - The Guardian 10.2.18

"Garcia's exceptional 2017 EP Nubya's 5ive" - The Vinyl Factory 20.2.2018

"Her leader debut [Nubya's 5ive] is a winning excursion into groove-based modal jazz, alighting on similar territory to Kamasi Washington...Ideal summer listening, and an impressive calling card from the hugely talented Garcia" - The Quietus 19.7.2017

"5ive is remarkable, an intoxicating combination of vibrant soloing and stay-in-your-head hooks: At a recent set during New York's Winter Jazzfest, Garcia had a sold-out crowd whooping with recognition when she played first riff on the album's opener, "Lost Kingdoms." - Rolling Stone Magazine 15.2.18

"On her debut, Nubya's 5ive, she and her band strike an engrossing balance between long stretches of dreamy exploration and surges of vital virtuosic intensity" - The Austin 100, npr 1.3.18
