London-born and raised she may be, but saxophonist-composer Nubya Garcia's music is pan-global in outlook, reflecting her Guyanese/Trinidadian heritage on one hand, and an openness to music in general, on the other. It should come as no surprise that her full-length debut is laced with Afro-Caribbean and South American rhythms, for Source is a personal proclamation—a musical passport of sorts. Equally, a streak of urban chic—marked by broken beats and dub atmospherics—colors these ten tracks. Yet for all its musical hybridity, Source is a jazz record at heart, stemming from the tradition, yet joyously pushing the boundaries.
