Nubya Garcia shines on new Harvey Sutherland track

The saxophonist lends her talent to “Amethyst.”

Nubya Garcia is one of London’s most exciting young jazz musicians, and possibly also one of the most prolific: Besides her own solo work, she’s also readying a new record with the collective Maisha and has contributed to drummer Makaya McCraven’s forthcoming album.

Now Garcia features on “Amethyst,” a new track by Harvey Sutherland. It arrives a year after the Australian producer’s EP, Expectations, released on Clarity Recordings.

The saxophonist gets to sprawl out over Sutherland’s funky production, which as he told Clash Magazine, aimed for “a jazz feel and lightness that was still really informed by the London broken beat scene.”
